Decaffeinated Coffee Will Kill You

(from the let’s create a sensational headline for this story dept.)

Drinking decaffeinated coffee may be harmful to heart health:

Decaffeinated — not caffeinated — coffee may cause an increase in harmful LDL cholesterol by increasing a specific type of blood fat linked to the metabolic syndrome, hints a new study presented at the American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions 2005. The Coffee and Lipoprotein Metabolism (CALM) study included 187 people, randomized to three groups: one that drank three to six cups of caffeinated coffee a day; another that drank three to six cups of decaffeinated coffee a day; and a third, the control group, that drank no coffee.

As someone who enjoys coffee but thinks decaffeinated tastes horrible, I have one think to say:

WOO-HOO!
