Report: French Press Coffee May Increase Risk to Strokes and Heart Attacks

While French Press coffee may be delicious, flavor-rich and preferred by many people, there was a report now suggesting that french press coffee may pose a serious risk to hypertension, strokes and heart attacks.

The report - - suggests that a high level of a cholesterol raising compound contained in french press coffee may raise significantly the risk to high blood pressure and consequent diseases.

It further suggests that for this reason people drinking french press coffee should switch to decaf.

Does it suggest that that the above mentioned component is in the caffeine of the coffee? Some confusion here.

At the same time, the report states that no association between drinking coffee and risk to hypertension has been determined so far, but people who already have hypertension should avoid the French Press method.

According to the report, this risk is only caused by the French Press coffee, while filter coffee makers will eliminate most of the component.

It mentions, however, only paper filters. What about permanent filters? Any idea?

It is worth to mention here a different report that has been published lately, suggesting that drinking coffee reduces the risk to cardiovascular and many other diseases. See: report - coffee reduces cardiovascular-diseases and digestive disorders.

Does coffee drinking increase the risk to miscarriages and low birth rates? The above mentioned first report suggests that it does; however, I have seen other reports stating the opposite, so no clarity here.
