If you drink your coffee like this, you could be increasing your risk of cancer!
When we drink liquids that are too hot, our risks of developing oesophageal cancer increase, Ohmymag reports.
While one study has found that drinking tea which is too hot increases the risks of cancers that are normally triggered by alcohol and tobacco, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has recently confirmed that even temperature alone could increase your risks of contracting cancer.
The connection between temperature and cancer was made as a result of various experiments carried out in South America and Iran where drinks are usually drunk when they are hotter than they are in this country, for example.
Food scientists subsequently found that this increased risk of oesophageal cancer occurs when the drink is served and consumed at more than 65°C.
