    Sex and coffee trigger stroke

    Sex and coffee trigger stroke

    Coffee, sex and blowing your nose could increase the risk of a type of stroke, say researchers in the Netherlands.

    The study on 250 patients identified eight risk factors linked to bleeding on the brain.

    They all increase blood pressure which could result in blood vessels bursting, according to research published in the journal Stroke...

    ...They found that coffee was responsible for more than one in 10 burst brain aneurysms.

    While people drinking coffee had only a 1.7 times greater risk, it is more common than other risk factors...

    Percentage of bursts due to:

    Coffee 10.6%
    Vigorous exercise 7.9%
    Nose blowing 5.4%
    Sex 4.3%
    Straining to defecate 3.6%
    Drinking cola 3.5%
    Being startled 2.7%
    Being angry 1.3%


    ...Dr Sharlin Ahmed, Research Liaison Officer at The Stroke Association said: "A sudden surge in high blood pressure can increase the likelihood of an aneurysm rupturing. However, its very difficult to determine whether the triggers identified in this study are definitely related to the onset of a stroke as they could simply be put down to coincidence.

    "A lot more research needs to be carried out to assess whether each of the identified triggers could directly cause an aneurysm to rupture."

    Re: Sex and coffee trigger stroke

    Is vigorous sex 7.9% + or x 4.3%?

    Sex?. Sex?? Whats that?

    Id be hard pressed to attempt all of the eight points to achieve approximate accumulated 36%.

    Surely more likely my fellow coffeesnobs will get an arnie...annie..ana..anal...aneurysm (whew,talk about vocal constipation :D) from burning a roast or messing up a perfect shot. Or worse still, running out of beans :-X Heaven forbid.

    Re: Sex and coffee trigger stroke

    For the good of my health I have given up vigorous exercise, blowing my nose and drinking cola.

    If the other things are accumulative, if I give up almost everything except coffee, I should stay healthy.

    Easier said than done Barryd ;)
    Seven of those points have happened to me on the same day before, except for that sex thing part.

    It comes down to sensibilities. As long as its all done in moderation without overdoing it, the chances of a stroke is slimmer.
    Better to stick to 2-3 cups of coffee a day rather than more than 8 cups a day.

    So Im guessing instant coffee counts as 10.6%. Therefore does simulated sex count as 4.3%? :-/ :)

    Re: Sex and coffee trigger stroke

    I would want to do see the methodology just because 10.9% of people had consumed coffee before an event doesnít mean that this event had anything to do with whatever happened.

    If a large number of people were breathing just before they had a stroke would it mean that breathing somehow causes a stroke?

    After all I think the researcher would be unlikely to find someone who had not been breathing in the previous 5 minutes that had had a stoke.

    If coffee changes your blood pressure what sort of change does it cause and for how long?

    What about De-Caff?

    However I will confess I did have a cardiologist charge me over $500 once and all he said was donít eat liquorice. :-/

    Re: Sex and coffee trigger stroke

    I thought it was having a brain aneurysm that predisposed you to having a ruptured brain aneurysm?

    So if the thought of increased risk of bursting your pre-existing aneurysm whilst drink coffee during vigorous sex that involves strained defecation and nose blowing makes you angry, then avoid any sudden and unexpected consumption of cola type products.

    Remember that if you suddenly leave CoffeeSnobs without explanation we will assume that this is how you met your demise.
