Here’s the article - http://www.americanheart.org/presenter.jhtml?identifier=3035336 So it’s final. Decaf is bad for us. I always suspected it. I mean, it tastes terrible, so how could it be good for you? Sounds like after three months the LDL in the decaffeinated drinkers began to rise, along with some wacky ApoB. Looks like more reading for Dana. Oh and this quote:
The decaffeination process can extract flavonoids and ingredients that give coffee flavor.
From http://www.nutritiondata.com (bioflavinoids): Flavonoids are a class of water-soluble pigments that are found in many plants. A few thousand different flavonoids have so far been identified. While not labeled as essential nutrients, many of these compounds serve as antioxidants or play other important roles in maintaining the health of your body.
