Tea may be linked cancers of the oesophagus, stomach, bowel, prostate, breast, pancreas, lung and kidney

Fact

Broadly, more than 2,000 studies found little or insufficient consistent evidence to suggest tea consumption increases risk of any of the above cancers. The one study where there was some suggestion of an increased risk for oesophageal cancer, is more likely to be linked to scaldingly hot water. A number of the studies found there was some suggestion that tea might protect against some forms of the disease. This was more likely to be the case for green tea. That research is currently underway.
