Drinking very hot tea combined with drinking alcohol and smoking could increase the risk of oesophageal cancer

The consumption of hot tea and excessive alcohol or tobacco use have been linked to increased risk for esophageal cancer, according to new research in China.

The researchers found that people who regularly drank hot tea, smoked and drank alcohol had the highest esophageal cancer risk.

Heavy alcohol drinkers are considered to be those who consume more than 15grams of alcohol per day, while smokers are defined as smoking more than one cigarette per day.

"Tobacco smoking and alcohol consumption, as well as the chemical compounds and adverse thermal effect of hot tea, considerably complicate the association between tea drinking and cancer risk", researchers said. In addition, the researchers only had data on tea habits when people first joined the study, which means that the effect of changing tea habits on cancer risk is unknown.

Esophageal cancer is increasing in prevalence and has poor survival rates, particularly in less-developed regions and for men.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer recently classified drinking beverages hotter than 149 F as "probably carcinogenic to humans", the authors point out.

Tea drinkers who smoked increased their chances by 56 percent. Similarly, the HR was 2.03 (CI, 1.55 to 2.67) for participants who consumed burning-hot tea daily and were current smokers.

The study was only observational, so a cause-and-effect link can not be determined. This cohort study of 456 155 participants based in China had a median follow-up of 9.2 years. Drinking tea is unlikely to be the biggest of their health problems.
