Iced Coffee Wins Again: Hot Coffee Causes Cancer

Bacon, cigarettes, tanning, diet soda, and hot drinks—what do all of these have in common? If you guessed that they most likely cause cancer, then not only are you correct, but you also spend too much time worrying about existing and to that I’ll add #chillthefuckout. A new study done by a UN agency found that drinks above a certain temperature are cancer causing, something all betches probably don’t care about considering all we drink is iced coffee anyway.

According to Yahoo! News, “Very hot drinks probably increase the risk of cancer, a UN agency said Wednesday, but coffee—once feared to be a carcinogen—is safe if enjoyed at ‘normal’ temperatures. Tea and mate, a popular South American herbal infusion, may also be harmful if drunk hotter than 65 degrees Celsius (150 degrees Fahrenheit), the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) reported.” So Chanel #1’s order of a trenta, no foam, five-shot, half-caf, no foam pumpkin spice latte at 210 degrees is probably out of the question.

So, basically, stay away from anything that isn’t served cold or already comes with a shit ton of ice. This shouldn’t be hard considering it’s sweltering outside anyway and during your runs to fulfill your need of 218. having like, a lot of beverages, remember that iced coffee and bottled water are necessities in life. While out and about you should only be drinking a vodka soda anyway. There. All your bases are covered and you should be cancer free. You’re welcome.
