Coffee Not Linked to Hypertension

Study: Coffee Not Linked to Hypertension

Here's good news for women who love coffee: It doesn't appear to cause long-term high blood pressure, according to a recent study.

Caffeine causes short-term increases in blood pressure, but coffee drinkers in the study were no more likely than abstainers to develop high blood pressure during 12 years of follow-up.

Previous data on coffee and hypertension are mixed, but there's a common perception that produces an increased long-term risk, said Dr. Wolfgang Winkelmayer, a researcher at Boston's Brigham and Women's Hospital.

"We found strong evidence to refute that."

There was even evidence that women who drank more coffee - four or more daily cups of regular or decaf - had a slightly lower risk for developing high blood pressure than those who drank little or none.

Women who drank more than three cups of coffee daily were about 7 percent to 12 percent less likely to develop high blood pressure than women who drank little or no coffee.

The study, which appears in the Journal of the American Medical Association, involved data from over 150,000 nurses who took part in two long-running health studies.
