I have read somewhere that coffee has antioxidants that can help make us healthy. I am wondering though... Does decaffeinated coffee have just as many antioxidants as regular coffee??

I heard the same,a University of Pennsylvania study implies that coffe has the most anti-oxidants, but is this really true? Isn't caffiene also an inflammatoty?

apparently both decaf and regular coffee have the same levels of antioxidants according to this article: http://www.physorg.com/news6067.html

Coffee addict! - coffee cups
I've also heard this and if it's the truth I should be very, very healthy since I'm a coffee addict. Since I only drink regular coffee and do have my health problems I would think it's only the decaf that has the antioxidants...but of course I could be wrong!
