Recommendation

In the early 1990s, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified coffee and hot maté as possible carcinogens, substances that can cause cancer in humans. Approximately a quarter of a century later, the agency’s researchers looked at new studies to re-evaluate its former findings. In this Q&A, accompanying a monograph on the subject, the IARC explains why the beverages were classified as possible carcinogens in 1991 and outlines what has changed since that original evaluation. getAbstract recommends these insights to public health professionals and coffee and maté enthusiasts.
