Coffee Antioxidants Article


Massive dose of antioxidants from coffee:


"They concluded that the average adult consumes 1,299 milligrams of antioxidants daily from coffee. The closest competitor was tea at 294 milligrams. Rounding out the top five sources were bananas, 76 milligrams; dry beans, 72 milligrams; and corn, 48 milligrams. According to the Agriculture Department, the typical adult American drinks 1.64 cups of coffee daily."

Does that mean that 1.64 cups of coffee contain 1,299 milligrams of antioxidants? That's wild. Blows green tea out of the water.


< - One cup a day since 1999. And loving it


I wonder what effect politics plays on these reports?
