There is controversy about the relationship between coffee intake and blood lipids in women and many studies fail to control for potential confounding factors.
In 1983 and 1984,541 randomly selected premenopausal women were recruited from a list of licenced drivers, aged 42-50, within selected areas in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.
They were invited to participate in a 5-year study of biological and behavioural changes associated with menopause.
At baseline and the first follow-up visit, lipoprotein, lipid and apoprotein levels, physical activity, dietary intake and coffee consumption were measured.
Pearson correlations between coffee consumption and the various lipid values were calculated.
