Researchers also only had data on tea consumption from one point in time, when people joined the study, making it impossible to know how changing habits might have impacted the cancer risk. They can abstain from drinking hot tea to prevent esophageal cancer or quit smoking and excessive alcohol use.

'Although several studies have demonstrated inhibitory effects of tea against tumourigenesis in the digestive tract, chronic thermal injury to the oesophageal mucosa may initiate carcinogenesis.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer, part of the World Health Organization, and the National Toxicology Program does not recognize tea as a carcinogen. Just adding another proven cause of esophageal cancer to the equation -hot drinks- will most definitely bring you higher risks as the result.

A total of 456,155 persons aged 30 to 79 years old participated in the study.

Based on the findings, the researchers offered some advice for people who smoke or drink large amounts of alcohol.

The researchers collected information about tobacco and alcohol consumption at the beginning of the study.

A total of 1,731 esophageal cancer cases were documented in the study.

Lv and team studied the link between drinking tea at very high temperatures and the development of esophageal cancer in the Chinese population; China is not only the number one consumer of tea, but it is also a country with one of the of this type of cancer.

This new study may make you consider letting your tea cool before you take a big gulp.

The researchers said that people who "drank high-temperature tea, consumed alcohol excessively, and smoked had an oesophageal cancer risk more than 5 times greater than those who had none of these 3 habits".

The participants who had been diagnosed with cancer were excluded along with the ones who had decreased their consumption of alcohol and tea as well as left smoking.

Tea also has many health benefits.

More prospective studies that directly measure tea temperature are needed, the study authors say.

The study, which was published in Annals of Internal Medicine, involved assessing over 450,000 individuals across 10 areas of China over a nine-year period.

The hypothesis that drinking very hot beverages may cause esophageal cancer has been around since the 1930s, they note.

'Of importance, however, is that the accumulated literature suggests little risk from hot drinks at temperatures below 65C (149F).
