Mind-Blowing Effects of Coffee and Sex

A new study from The Netherlands suggests that having sex and drinking coffee can temporarily raise your risks of strokes or brain aneurysms. Several triggers were identified in the study published by the American Heart Association including coffee consumption, vigorous exercise, nose blowing, sexual intercourse, straining to defecate and cola consumption.  Being startled or suddenly angry was also implicated in increasing the risk of rupturing a weakened vessel in the brain.

Monique H.M. Vlak, M.D., lead author of the study and a neurologist at the University Medical Center in Utrecht, The Netherlands explained that, “all of the triggers induce a sudden and short increase in blood pressure, which seems a possible common cause for aneurismal rupture.”

The study asked 250 patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage to complete a questionnaire about exposure to 30 possible triggers; follow up included assessing relative risk to determine a causal relationship between the trigger and brain event.

“Subarachnoid hemorrhage caused by the rupture of an intracranial aneurysm is a devastating event that often affects young adults. These trigger factors we found are superimposed on known risk factors, including female gender, age and hypertension.” Men suffer strokes more than women, and while aneurysms can occur in children, they most often occur in adults.

Coffee consumption in the Middle East is well documented, with the earliest consumption appearing in the middle of the 15th century in the Sufi monasteries of Yemen. The Arab region is credited with cultivating the bean. From the Muslim world, coffee drinking extended to Italy and Europe, and for a time it was banned in Ethiopian and Turkey because it was associated with rebellious political activity.

    Hmmm… You know the ladies in the 1600’s tried something like this, they ended up drinking coffee with the rest of them a century later when they found out it wasn’t true.
