Coffee Consumption and Risk of Stroke in Women

Stroke, 03/15/2011

After adjustment for other risk factors, coffee consumption was associated with a statistically significant lower risk of total stroke, cerebral infarction, and subarachnoid hemorrhage but not intracerebral hemorrhage. The association between coffee consumption and cerebral infarction was not modified by smoking status, body mass index, history of diabetes or hypertension, or alcohol consumption. These findings suggest that low or no coffee consumption is associated with an increased risk of stroke in women.
