Coffee 'can boost brain haemorrhage risk'


Goodness me, give up coffee; don't blow your nose; don't do too much exercise; don't drink cola; don't strain on the toilet; don't get startled; don't get angry; and don't have sex -at this rate we will all be advised not to get out of bed. Actually if you thought too much about it you wouldn't WANT to get out of bed and just risk it with the last one! My mum literally dropped dead from an intracranial aneurysm as did her father. She had been in bed with a vomiting bug so no doubt that's what triggered it. My brother and I have both had MRI scans for seperate medical emergencies but my sister has not and doesn't want to citing 'When it's your time to go it's your time to go' as her reasoning. If the other 23 trigger factors are as run as the mill as these ones then I tend to agree with her. No offence to the researchers but 250 patients is not a good enough ratio for me to send such a scaremongering message out there I'm afraid.
