Hot Drinks can Cause Cancer ?

Postby tankee » Wed Jun 15, 2016 10:40 pm

LONDON: There is no conclusive evidence that drinking coffee causes cancer, the World Health Organization's cancer agency said on Wednesday in a reverse of its previous warning, but it also said all "very hot" drinks are probably carcinogenic.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) had previously rated coffee as "possibly carcinogenic" but has changed its mind.

It now says its latest review found "no conclusive evidence for a carcinogenic effect" of coffee drinking and pointed to some studies showing coffee may actually reduce the risk of developing certain types of cancer.

"(This) does not show that coffee is certainly safe ... but there is less reason for concern today than there was before," Dana Loomis, the deputy head of IARC's Monograph classification department told a news conference.

At the same time, however, IARC presented other scientific evidence which suggests that drinking anything very hot - around 65 degrees Celsius or above - including water, coffee, tea and other beverages, probably does cause cancer of the oesophagus.

How hot is 65 degrees? Any idea what temperature drinks are when people actually drink them?

The link is very weak and not strongly causal, so I don't think it's really any cause for concern. I'm just curious how hot 65 degrees is as I have really no idea.

Answering my own question:

Quote: He stressed that 65°C is "really quite hot" - way above "normal serving temperatures for coffee and tea in European countries and North America," which are typically below 60 degrees.

Our tongue tolerant is around 47 degrees, so majority of the people would not drink their hot beverages at 65 degrees.

if the beverage is hot and people force themselves to drink, they will burn their tongues and mouths.
