Back in March, 2019, the International Journal of Cancer published a study finding a connection between drinking hot beverages and esophageal cancer.
The study found that those who drank more than 700 ml (almost 24 ounces) of tea a day at a temperature of 60 degrees Celsius (140 degrees Fahrenheit) had a 90 percent higher risk for esophageal cancer.
The American Cancer Society estimates about 17,650 new cases of esophageal cancer will be diagnosed in the United States in 2019. Americans typically drink beverages like coffee, tea and hot chocolate at temperatures lower than 149 degrees Fahrenheit, but in South America, Asia and Africa, tea is served much hotter, according to the organization.
Since so many of us LOVE our hot coffee, tea, and cocoa, it’s good to know Drink Perfector was launched on March 1, 2019 at Coffee Fest in NYC!
The Drink Perfector takes scalding hot tea or coffee to a perfect and safe drinking temperature in just 20 seconds - without watering down your beverage.
I designed the Drink Perfector because my wife and daughter kept burning their tongues on their black coffee. Then we started digging around online and found another, more serious health hazard of drinking beverages at scalding temperatures.
We found the research on esophageal cancer.
The study released reinforces results from many other studies - giving us one more important reason to spread the word about Drink Perfection!
We’re so excited to share it with the coffee and tea community!
