Coffee Good, Cola Bad
Coffee Good, Cola Bad For Women

POSTED: 2:01 pm EST November 8, 2005
UPDATED: 3:24 pm EST November 8, 2005

You might think caffeinated coffee would increase your blood pressure. Not so, according to a new study in JAMA, the Journal of the American Medical Association.
"Coffee drinking was not at all associated with a greater risk of high blood pressure," said Wolfgang Winkelmayer, M.D. ScD with Brigham and Women´s Hospital. "If anything, coffee drinking was associated with a preventive effect in that women who drank more coffee were less likely to have high blood pressure."
Winkelmayer was part of a 12-year study of about 150,000 women. The researchers, from Brigham and Women´s Hospital in Boston, and other institutions, expected to find that caffeinated coffee increased the risk of high blood pressure.

Re: Coffee Good, Cola Bad
Have for some time heard the purported link between coffee and high bp was unfounded..nice to see a study backing this up..

Believe the phosphoric acid in sodas depletes potassium...not sure if low potassium levels are associated with high blood pressure.

Nice to see coffeecup may offer some more bennies..(do love it so :))..it does deplete the adrenals significantly however, moreso I think for women..

Actually coffee is very bad too and not because of caffeine either.

Coffee takes quite a toll on the edges of red blood cells as I read it

YES LOW POTTASIUM IS A CAUSE OF HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE.

THE BODY BALANCES TWO MINERAL SALT AND POTTASIUM. THE IDEAL BLOOD LEVEL IS ONE SALT TO THE POTTASIUM.

IF THE RATIO RISES DUE TO POTASSIUM SHORTAGE, OSMOSIS OCCURS AND WATER IS DRAWN FROM CELLS, THIS INCREASES BLOOD VOLUME AND HENCE BLOOD PRESSURE.

BETA BLOCKER DO NOT ADDRESS THIS CAUSE, RATHER THEY SLOW THE HEART DOWN TO REDUCE THE PRESSURE.

WE USUALLY EAT A LOT OF SALT AND THE BODY REGULTES IT, SECRETING EXCESS. IN HOT WEATHER YOU NEED A LOT BECAUSE YOU LOSE IT THROUGH SWEAT.

THE BODY HAS MORE DIFFICULTY WITH POTTASIUM AS WE USUALLY DO NOT GET ENOUGH. IT IS A HARD MINERAL TO ADSORB. BANANAS ARE A GOOD SOURCE.

Morning, Malu..coffeecup

Thanks for the info on potassium, GL..when I was younger, my
doctor advised me to eat a banana every day for the potassium.
I didn´t realize that it´s not easily absorbed by the body.

AS FAR AS I KNOW YOU CANNOT REALLY GULP DOWN A POTASSIUM PILL. IT NEEDS TO BE BIO AVAILABLE.

BUT THE RATIO SALT TO POTASSIUM IS SIMPLE CHEMISTRY. OSMOSIS EFFECT WELL KNOW, SO I DONT KNOW WHY IT IS NOT WELL DOCUMENTED.

Re: Coffee Good, Cola Bad
Cheers to this article! :)

I don´t know what I would do without my morning coffee. It´s my absolute favorite time of day. Get the kids and hubby off to school and work, get myself ready, do my morning chores, and then....It´s MY time. 1 whole hour of me, my coffee and my laptop :) Then off to the daily grind...

I am also such a creature of habit: Weekdays, I drink coffee exclusively until about noon (average 4 cups). Then I switch to green tea or water until about 4.

4 o´clock and it´s Miller time (or Fosters if I am pampering myself). 1 beer around 4 (funny, that´s about the time the everyone is coming home, lol).

And then perhaps 1 beer or a glass of wine for dinner.

Never drink coke. Ick!

Weekends are different. Coffee all morning, but depending on what´s going on I may have beer earlier (i.e., at the lake, etc..).

But I could give up the beer, and the green tea if I had to...I could NOT give up my coffee. I´ve tried. I see no reason in living life without my java! :)

Did you notice, it´s near impossible to find a decent K+ supplement? And when you do find one, it contains about 2% of the requirement. It ought to be possible to produce a cheleated form of potassium. It must be a conspiracy!

VALID POINT, WE GOT MEN ON THE MOON, ROVERS ON MARS BUT CANNOT MAKE CHEAP BIO-AVAILABLE POTASSIUM.

ALSO WHEN YOU ASK THE DOC ABOUT BLOOD PRESSURE HE SAYS NOTHING ABOUT CURING IT, ONLY "TAKE THESE PILLS" THEY WILL BRING YOUR PRESSURE DOWN.
