KARACHI: Can you imagine starting a day without a steaming cup of tea? Turns out a hot piping cup of tea can lead one to esophageal cancer.
Published in the International Journal of Cancer, the new study found out that tea drinkers who liked the beverage warmer than 60 degrees (140 degrees Farenheit) and had an intake of more than 700 ml a day, had a 90% higher risk of esophageal cancer than those who drank it at cooler temperatures.
The study observed more than 50,000 people in Golestan, a province in northeastern Iran. To increase the accuracy of the findings, photographs of five types of cups and mugs commonly used in Golestan were ascertained.
The sun causes cancer, cell phones cause cancer, hot tea causes cancer. Guess I just wasn’t meant to have a good life

So now eggs will give you heart disease, cannabis causes psychosis, a few drops of soda will kill you, hot tea gives you cancer, and you can’t eat most fruits and veggies because they’re all inextricably laced with pesticide. Next on the news, everyone who breathes air, dies.
