Drinking Coffee does not Raise Blood Pressure But Soda Does

Drinking Coffee does not Raise Blood Pressure But Soda Does

Coffee Beans

Women that drink coffee may not show an increase in blood pressure.  According to a new study appearing in the November 9th issue of Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) coffee drinking has no links to temporary hypertension or even persistent high blood pressure.

The Study, authored by Dr. Wolfgang Winkelmayer assessed the relationship between coffee intake and physician diagnosed hypertension (blood pressure).  They did find that cola consumption increased the risk for hypertension. 

Caffeine “acutely” increases blood pressure according the team.  The study followed women that were free from physician diagnosed hypertension for 12 years.  Through questionnaires they compared coffee and cola intake with blood pressure.


The study concluded that even though habitual coffee consumption was not associated with an increased risk of hypertension, consumption of sugared or diet cola was associated with it.   

This is good news for coffee drinkers but bad news for those that drink colas. About 50 million Americans have hypertension or persistent high blood pressure.  Further studies are warranted to determine why colas raise blood pressure and coffee does not.
