Hot drinks could be a cancer cause
COFFEE drinkers can breathe a sigh of relief as they sip from their cups, as long as their beverage is not too hot.
A major study by the International Agency for Research on Cancer has found the evidence linking coffee consumption to cancer has become "weaker".
However, the research also found that drinking "very hot drinks" - liquids 65 degrees or above - probably caused oesophageal cancer.
The finding suggested the temperature of drinks, not what the drinks were, was important when it came to potential links to cancer.
