Caffeine reduces infant blood flow
...chocardiograms (EKGs). They found that blood flow velocity
in a major brain artery decreased by 18 percent an hour after caffeine administration and 25 percent after two hours. Within the intestinal arteries, the BFV decreased to 10 percent after an hour, but showed no major changes two hours after caffeine ...
Just one cigarette could cause significant damage
...lso compared augmentation index, aortic pulse wave velocity
