Skip to comments.Sex and coffee 'trigger stroke'
Posted on 05/05/2011 5:41:32 PM PDT by decimon
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.
The Stroke Association said more research was needed to see if the triggers caused the rupture.
More than 150,000 people in the UK have a stroke each year with nearly 29,000 due to bleeding on the brain.
Bleeding can happen when a weakened blood vessel, known as a brain aneurysm, bursts. This can result in brain damage or death.
The researchers at the University Medical Center in Utrecht looked at 250 patients for three years to identify what triggers ruptures.

I guess I'll do a little yard work this evening with a beer, instead.
Percentage of bursts due to:
Vigorous exercise 7.9%
Nose blowing 5.4%
Straining to defecate 3.6%
Drinking cola 3.5%
Being startled 2.7%
Being angry 1.3%
Like ur really gonna stop having sex?? Riiiiiiight.
seventy in the saddle :)
Okay... good safety tip.
Well, well, well! Sounds like sex in the morning is out! I wonder why the left Bacon out of this experiment?
Has not killed me yet.

Maybe Darks will give you his coffee recipe...
Can I keep the coffee and be ok?
I should have had a stroke since I was 17 then.
>>Blow your nose while drinking coffee and having sex and your a goner.
haven’t you had a THREE-SOME before?
I now have my coffee making instruction in German.
But I’ll be nice and put them in English since I don’t spreche deutsch.
In 12 cup drip percolator pot, fill to 6 cup mark with water.
In filter, put 6 heaping scoops of coffee.
Medium roast works best, just make sure it’s a robust blend.
Found a maxwellhouse ‘medium roast’ that was rather anemic.
Put pinch of salt in filter, about as much as it would take to cover the surface of a dime with one even layer.
This keeps the coffee from tasting burned too quickly, it doesn’t age well brewed this way.
Brew, recirculate if need be, usually not.
Add sugar and dairy creamer.
Creamora and coffeemate are not recommended unless you like the heart racing that Ranger Pudding gives.
That, and the nondairy creamer will give you both a headache and a buzz with the coffee.
I usually put about 8 spoons of sugar in this stuff, it ends up being like Russian Kava, thick and sweet with that bitter overtone to it.
Oh, and I am NOT responsible for seeming demonic possession of the coffeepot, or the coffeepot ending up acting as if it has been damaged.
Be sure NOT to add creamora or coffeemate to the brew, unless you LIKE ranger pudding style heart racing.
When I brew that stuff for myself, I recirculate the stuff to brew a second time, but that’s me for my own personal enjoyment, and it may wreck the coffeepot.
Don’t forget the salt, it’s important to the finished brew.
What about tingling in the leg when one hears “The Divine One” speak?
Vigorous exercise 7.9%
Oh wait, I'm safe. My lack of vigorous exercise cancels out my daily gallon of coffee.
What? No Humblegunner warning?
If I tried to drink coffee while engaged in that activity with my beloved darling, she’d kill me.
My husband is a dead man walking. Time to take out more insurance! ;-)
You hear me, woman????
If you are the guy with the beard and the helmet......... then I can understand the reason you aren’t getting any.
You lost my respect when you said add sugar and creamer.
Coffee is meant to be black. The way God intended it!
Ain’t none of us getting outta here alive!
Damn, I’ve been brewing espresso with Red Bull....I best not look at my wife’s Glamour magazine.
...I am screwed.
No don't do that! It may cause a stroke!
These studies are BS!
Give them a year or so and they’ll be proclaining that coffee might prevent strokes. I’ll gurantee this is a Left-Wing Study that helps Leftist control people’s behavior!
We also might get hit by an asteroid tonight! I’m going to go and hide and never eat, drink or engage in any more activities!
What about those for whom sex only comes by stroking?
Mind-blowing sex is great. Never had nose-blowing sex, though. Guess it would be good to avoid...
Hey I did it this morning and lived!!
Pour water into the strainer basket without letting it drip out, to see how many cups it hold without running over; perk the coffee to that much liquid each time; grind your own beans just before pouring the grinds into the filtered basket (use brown non-bleached filters) and grind tewo tablespoons per cup of water; let the entire reserve of water perk into the strainer and sit for three minutes once perking stops, then put the pot under the strainer and drain it; coffee will be fresher, less 'parched' flavor, and very strong. I looked for a pot that has an eight cup strainer, which I only fill that full if serving a second and third person. Four cups made this 'strong enough to walk on its own' is my morning jolt. I use only french vanilla creamer in my coffee, or drink it hot and black. Crispy oatmeal cookies dipped in the straight brew are a nice breakfast ...
Oh, and put a Benadryl in your coffee.

After your coffee and sex, have the usual cigarette instead and then you don’t have to worry....
That stuff is more aimed towards “Emergency Power”.
With sugar added, it becomes similar to russian kava, nasty thick bitter with sometimes a hint of sweetness somewhere.
I don’t recommend trying it black and plain.
If you do, let me know what happens, I can add it to the testimonials section of the stuff.
Sounds like you did some experimentation.
Nobody will try and give the stuff to deer, will they?
Oh yeah! ... My stash is 100% Arabica. I would mainline the smell after grinding, if I could.
Truly I am a monster.
So how many people have you nailed with the stuff for amusement?
Not telling you! ... But I will say this, you can make your own Coffee liquor by double brewing with my method and adding it to an amount of cheap vodka equal to half the coffee volume, sugared to taste. Let sit in a closed glass container for a week before serving.
Sounds like you’ve been experimenting with this stuff for awhile.
Sdly, the missus banned me from making the coffee.
Apparently newer coffee makers don’t like to do this, and they break.
So my missus went all “wrath of the Olympians” on me about killing the coffee maker.
Thgis just in: LIfe increases the chance of death to 100%
Well now, there ya go ... my two cats don’t say a word and the coffee maker is seventeen or twenty years old. But I do clean it regularly with white vinegar and then perk a pot of just water through it.
