High consumption of mate may make lung cancer more likely to occur in men.

​This study investigated the mate beverage-lung cancer connection hypothesis in males. Researchers studied the mate drinking habits of 497 patients with lung cancer and 497 healthy men residing in Uruguay from 1988 to 1994.
