Cancer Warning: Mate Tea Increases Risk

In addition, a review article published in the BMJ cited research showing that drinking “scorching hot” mate was associated with an increased risk of esophageal cancer.

The research, published in the journal American Association for Cancer Research, was based on two case studies: a study in Uruguay from 1988 to 2005 and a multinational study from 1986 to 1992 in Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay, with 1,400 cases and 3,229 controls. .

Contrary to the previous study, however, the intensity of partner drinking had no influence on cancer risk.

But the “strength of the association increased with higher mate temperatures,” the researchers concluded.
