Sex and Coffee Can Increase Stroke Risk

A recent study found that drinking coffee, having sex, or even clean your nose mucus with a blow, could increase the risk of rupture of aneurysm in the brain and suffered a stroke. The results of this study published in Stroke: Journal of the American Heart Association. "

Dutch researchers identified eight major drivers that appear to increase the risk of intracranial aneurysm (IA), which is a weakness in the wall of blood vessels of the brain that often causes the bubbles.

If broken, can result in subarachnoid hemorrhage as a stroke caused by bleeding in the base of the brain. An estimated two percent of the general population has Naturalife Greenworld IA, but few of them are broken. Calculating the population attributable risk fraction, subarachnoid hemorrhage can also be caused by certain trigger factors. And, researchers have identified eight factors and their contribution to risk.

It was found that coffee consumption contributes 10.6 percent, 7.9 percent stronger physical exercises, blowing the nose 5.4 percent, 4.3 percent of sexual relations, forced to defecate 3.6 percent, 3.5 percent of cola consumption, surprised or shocked 2.7 percent, 1.3 percent and angry nature.

"All these triggers cause an increase in sudden and brief in blood pressure, which seems to be a common cause which may for aneurismal rupture," said Monique HM Vlak, MD, lead author of the study and a neurologist at the University Medical Center in Utrecht, the Netherlands.

Meanwhile, the higher risk occurred after drinking alcohol, but decreased rapidly, the researchers said. "Subarachnoid hemorrhage caused by rupture of an intracranial aneurysm is a devastating event that often affects adults." "We found a trigger factor in the risk factors that are known, including a woman, age sex and hypertension," said Vlak.

Although physical activity as a potential trigger, the researchers also did not suggest to stop doing it. Because, it is also an important factor in lowering the risk of other cardiovascular disease. "Reducing consumption of caffeine or treat patients with constipation with laxatives may reduce the risk of subarachnoid hemorrhage," said Vlak.
