Cut down on fries

A research suggests, that starting the day with a heavy breakfast and a steaming cup of tea may increase a woman's risk of throat cancer.Scientists found that women who eat fried food each morning are at twice the risk of the most common form of throat, or oesophageal, cancer.The best way to reduce the incidence of cancer is to begin the day with a light breakfast such as cereal or fruit.

Cancer of the oesophagus - the food pipe connecting the stomach with the upper throat - affects approximately 11,000 people every year. Drinking lots of tea or coffee - particularly when piping hot - also seems to increase risk, perhaps because of the burning effect of the liquid as it passes down the food pipe.//

Concentrating on the most common form of oesophageal cancer, called squamous cell carcinoma, the researchers questioned 234 women with the disease from Oxfordshire, East Anglia, Trent and Eastern Scotland about their lifestyles. Women who ate a cooked breakfast each morning were at more than twice the risk of developing oesophageal cancer as those who began the day with a light breakfast.

But women who skipped breakfast altogether had a risk that was a startling five times higher than the light breakfast group. Professor Nick Day, of the Cancer Research Campaign, said: "As in other parts of the world where women have relatively high rates of oesophageal cancer, there's a strong link with poor diet and drinking lots of very hot drinks.

The study suggested that women who drink lots of tea are at over three times the risk of the disease of non tea-drinkers, although because of the large amount of variation between women, the evidence was not conclusive. But women who consumed their hot drinks immediately after making them were three times more likely to develop the disease as those who waited a while for their drinks to cool down. Dr Sharp said: "It's interesting that the risk seems to be higher with tea than with coffee, bu t perhaps people drink their tea at a higher temperature."
