Those Who Drink Hot Coffee Have a Higher Risk of Cancer

In line with this study, researchers who realized that people who drink more hot tea or coffee have an increased risk of developing cancer compared to people who do not drink coffee, think that those who drink hot coffee have a 5.5 times higher risk, and those who drink warm coffee have a 2.7 times higher risk.

The approach of scientists to the subject also confirms this research relatively. It is thought that hot drinks cause cells to regenerate, and cell renewal causes new cells to become cancerous.

Oncologist and gastroenterologist Smita Joshi stated that hot beverages such as hot tea or coffee should be cooled for a short time before drinking in order to reduce the risk of this cancer.
