Hot drinks, such as coffee and tea, can damage tissues in the mouth, pharynx and oesophagus. By hot drinks we mean liquids that are hotter than 65°C when drunk.
Hot drinks and your health
There are health effects associated with drinking hot drinks.

In addition, an iGene Passport provides you with information on what else you can do to reduce any risks. Here we focus on behaviour that will help you maximise the benefits to your health. In the publication below you can read more about what iGene can do for you.
