“To drink – to health to harm” is the expression now applies even to just hot, not hot, beverages. The international Agency for research on cancer (IARC) under world health organization (who) recognized the use of excessively hot drinks (e.g. coffee and tea) threat to human health. It is reported by the popular newspaper the Independent.
As explained by the Director of the International Agency for Research on Cancer Christopher Wilde: “the Results indicate that the use of too hot drinks is a likely cause of cancer of the esophagus and the temperature, not the drinks appear to be responsible for the development and increase of cancer cells”. A critical mark scientists call the temperature at 65 degrees Celsius. Drinking liquids with a temperature below this mark are named safe for human health and the temperature of the above can be associated with the risk of developing cancer of the esophagus.
“Scientific studies conducted in countries such as Turkey, Iran and China, and countries in South America, where tea or Yerba mate is traditionally a very hot drink (the temperature of the beer reaches 70 degrees Celsius) found that the risk of developing esophageal cancer increases with temperature,” notes the who. Conclusions of scientists are based on the meta-analysis of over a thousand scientific studies on the possible carcinogenic properties of coffee and is popular in South America, mate is a tonic drink, cooking, using the leaves and shoots of the Paraguayan Holly tree. Conducted analysis takes into account the risk factors associated with the use also tobacco and alcohol. Coffee mate and in 1991 was classified by the who as a “probable carcinogenic to humans”.
