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.
My name is TSgt and I’m a coffee whore.

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????
