    Might raise yer Blood Pressure a little, though....

    Blood Pressure - In a study of 1,017 male former medical students (mean age 26
    years) who graduated between 1948 and 1964, for a median follow-up of 33 years,
    consumption of 1 cup of coffee a day raised systolic blood pressure by 0.19 mmHg
    and diastolic pressure by 0.27 mmHg after adjusting for variables. Compared with
    non-coffee drinkers, coffee drinkers had a greater incidence of hypertension
    upon follow-up at 28.3% vs.18.8%. Coffee drinking may play a small role in the
    development of hypertension. Klag MJ, Wang ¨CY, et al, Arch Intern Med, March
    25, 2002;162:657-662. 39770
