In March 2009, the BBC News headlined, "Boiling tea can cause cancer." In the same month, The Times published an article entitled "Too hot tea or coffee." Causes cancer of the esophagus. ”Similarly, the Daily Express ran a story saying,“ Drinking hot tea can cause cancer. ”An article published in the British Medical Journal on the relationship between tea and cancer. The relationship was mentioned and became a topic of discussion.
As the 2009 study was based on questions from people who drank tea, including those with cancer. The results depended on people's responses. Questions were asked about the temperature. Therefore, the results depended entirely on people's memory and feelings. For example, if the tea was hot for someone, the same temperature was too hot for someone. Thus, this research was biased.
According to a March 2 study, people who drink 700 mg of tea a day at a temperature of 20 degrees or higher have a 41% increased risk of esophageal cancer.
His research was further strengthened when researchers in 2009 looked at how many of those who drank tea in the next ten years were diagnosed with cancer. Tea with a temperature of more than 25 degrees was said to be very hot.
As a resident of a country where the majority are tea-loving. This news is a wake-up call for most of us. A cup of hot tea in our homes is considered a sign of relief and warmth. Severe headaches. I tea reduces pain. It reduces stress in difficult times and also has the power to reduce conflict with someone. A cup of tea is like a friend to us who is with us in every difficulty. It is incomprehensible to think that a cup of tea is harmful to us.
The methodology for this research on cancer was developed in collaboration with the National Cancer Institute and the International Institute for Research. Despite the impact of this research on our lives, this research was done.
The study was started in Golestan province of Iran, where more patients were found to have esophageal cancer. The cancer could have been caused by a hereditary disease, so the effects of hot tea on Iranians could be different from other populations. Were
2. The cause of cancer was 700 mg of tea which is equivalent to 4 cups and its temperature is 20 degrees ie extremely hot. Research has shown that people who drink less amount of tea and lower temperature. Yes, they are quite safe from this cancer risk.
The 10-year study found that drinking too much hot tea increased the risk of esophageal cancer in the Iranian population. In addition, drinking tea at temperatures below 700 mg and 60 degrees. Therefore, the easiest way to prevent cancer is to keep it for a while after extracting the tea or to cool it by mixing it with milk.
Keep in mind that an article published in The Times in March 2019, entitled "You can avoid the risks of throat cancer by adding a little milk to your tea." The simplest way to reduce it is to hope instead of despair.
Efforts are being made by medical institutes to find out the causes of the rapidly growing cancer worldwide and even a small amount of research that helps in this regard is of great importance. It should be presented in the light of experiences and facts. Because it would be a shame if any research instead of being helpful to us causes trouble, especially when we cannot drink even a cup of tea to get relief.
