Surprise! What 3 Things Do Coffee, Cigarettes, and Red Wine Have in Common?


Now this is s stretch, right? Are there really three common things about coffee, cigarettes, and red wine? Let’s explore the topic and see. The first thing they have in common is the heart–but not in the way you might think.

The Heart

It’s been known for a long time that each coffee and cigarettes affect the health of the heart. In articles, on blogs and talks, each has been associated with “hardening of the arteries” which leads to heart disease. But a study from about 10 years ago shows that when taken together, caffeine and cigarettes can interact, and produce negative effects on the heart.

Red wine, on the other hand, has interesting implications when it comes to the heart. If you Google benefit of red wine, you’ll find several studies that say it’s good for the heart, as it lowers blood pressure! Now that doesn’t mean a bottle at a time. Studies refer to a glass or two at most, to reduce stress, which ultimately lowers blood pressure–which is GOOD for the heart.

Headaches and Migraines

Now here’s where all three–Coffee, Cigarettes, and Red Wine–dance at once. They ALL have been found to contribute to headaches and migraines. Each one, on its own, is said to be a trigger! So if you suffer from headaches or migraines, back up and step away from any of these things.

The third commonality we’ll discuss in this article between coffee, cigarettes, and red wine might be something you’re already aware of.

Tooth Discoloration

Do you drink coffee? Every time you smile others might know you do. Coffee discolors teeth. Just look on the inside of your teeth next to your tongue. Also, take a moment to look between your teeth in front. Yuck! Can this thing you love so much (coffee) be working so hard against your gorgeous teeth? Nothing to smile about, is it?

If you’re a heavy smoker, or if you know one, you know that cigarette smoke stains your teeth. You might not be surprised about this one. If you see people with disgusting brown stains nicotine and cigarette smoke is likely the culprit. The longer you’ve been a smoker, the darker and more resistant these dark stains can be. All the brushing in the world will not remove them.

And now, red wine….

Hard to believe this delicious beverage can do so much damage. Though not as bad as coffee and cigarettes,  tooth staining from red wine can make your teeth dingy and dull. A gray color often marks the smile of a regular wine drinker.

To make things worse, tooth discoloration gets worse as we age. First of all, when we’re young most of us don’t smoke, drink coffee or sip red wine. These three items top the list when it comes to tooth stains. If you partake—even occasionally—in any of them, you may be paying the price with grossly discolored teeth.

Are the stains permanent? Not always.

Is there no hope? Are we sentenced to a life of dark, dingy, discolored teeth if we indulge in the above? No! There is something you can do, and it has nothing to do with avoidance.
