    From the article:

    Percentage of bursts due to:
    Coffee 10.6%
    Vigorous exercise 7.9%
    Nose blowing 5.4%
    Sex 4.3%
    Straining to defecate 3.6%
    Drinking cola 3.5%
    Being startled 2.7%
    Being angry 1.3%

    Thanks, waltky, I thought of this when I was blowing my nose this morning. And going to the bathroom. : (

    Of course, like the article says, other factors contribute to the vessels being weakened in the first place, particularly high blood pressure.

    I wonder if it means to say "most vegetables, and potatoes" are high in potassium! Because bananas are always getting credit for being high in potassium, but potatoes are higher in potassium than bananas.
