Sipping hot tea linked with throat tumor

All those gentlemen who would like to drink their cup of tea hot with
vapor do think again. It is high time that you changed your hot habit
because you are more at risk of developing throat cancer. A remarkable
research by Iranian scientists has lead to this startling discovery.
They visited the Golestan province which has one of the highest rates of esophageal cancer in the world. The people here normally don't use
alcohol and tobacco often yet they have a high frequency of cancer
cases which can be attributed to their habit of drinking large
quantities of hot black tea. Scientists warn that people drinking beverages
between 65-69ºC were twice as likely to develop throat cancer compared to those who take it in less than 65ºC. A tea that is hotter than 70ºC can increase your vulnerability to cancer 8 fold. The blistering fluid can damage the epithelial lining of the throat on its descent from the mouth thereby leading to cancer over a period of time. Whenever you wish to sip your tea make sure that it is between 50-60ºC and that at least 4 minutes have expired since it was taken away from the simmer.
