  1. It is almost impossible to swallow beverages at 65° C:
    “After temperatures of 60°-65°C. the epidermis can be peeled off from the exposed area, leaving a punched-out exposed surface area somewhat like the exposed human blister.”
    EXPERIMENTAL THERMAL BURNS, ESPECIALLY THE MODERATE TEMPERATURE BURN
    Leach E. H., Peters R. A. and Rossiter R. J.
    Quarterly Journal of Experimental Physiology and Cognate Medical Sciences
    Volume 32, Issue 1, pages 67–86, May 22, 1943
    If something blisters the roof of your mouth, your throat refuses to swallow it.

  2. Furthermore, “rats and mice” are cited. How, pray tell, could an animal ingest something that hot unless it was force-fed? Yes, burn tissue repeatedly, eventually cell proliferation might go bad. Not to mention the barbarism of subjecting any being to such “experiments.”

    Just another piece of spin to make people feel it’s their personal “mistakes” that give them cancer–and deflect attention from the fact that cancer “research” is based on profiteering from the whipped-up fear.

  3. The rationale that because South Americans have a higher incidence of esophageal cancer and drink maté at a high temperature is meaningless when we’re supposed to eat meat that’s been cooked to 160°F. The lining of the esophagus and mouth are both mucosal and as such, have the same physiological matrix. Eating hot foods should therefore also result in higher rates of cancer in the mouth—but there isn’t any evidence to suggest temperature has anything to do with cancer.

    I could have more easily said ‘correlation does not mean causation’ but honestly, this is such an exercise in so-called “experts” doing research with blinders on and brains turned off. I’m sick and tired of money being wasted on garbage like this!
