coffeeCOFFEE drinkers will want to add some cold milk, or think about switching over to iced coffee.

Hot coffee at once reduces and increases a drinker’s risk of cancer according to a report by the World Health Organization and the International Agency for Research on Cancer.

The IARC released a statement saying ‘some studies [show] coffee may actually reduce the risk of developing certain types of cancer.’

The IARC retracted its previous label for coffee, ‘possibly carcinogenic.’

The WHO maintains, though, that all ‘very hot’ drinks are probably carcinogenic, defining ‘very hot’ as 65 degrees or above. This includes everything from tea to soup.
