The Impact of Coffee Drinking—Reply

Arch Intern Med. 2003;163(3):371. doi:10.1001/archinte.163.3.370-a

We greatly appreciate Dr Rust's interest in our work but disagree strongly with his statement that we presented a distorted view of our data and with his interpretation of our findings. His concern is that we did not acknowledge the disparity between the very small increase in average blood pressure and the 10% increase in relative risk of developing hypertension associated with drinking 1 cup of coffee a day, an increase in risk that he terms substantial.
