Coffee vs. Decaf Coffee

Decaffeination is the process through which caffeine content is removed from coffee beans. Decaf coffee has an estimated of 98 percent less caffeine than normal coffee.

Coffee Vs Decaf Coffee – In Terms of Blood Pressure!
It has always been believed that high amounts of caffeine in coffee was the triggering factor behind high blood pressure and increased heart rate. It was alleged that the decaffeination process would eliminate these risks; however, recent research has revealed that people who consume decaf coffee are still vulnerable to these problems. This is most likely to be explained by the fact that caffeine is still present in decaf coffee too.

Coffee Vs Decaf Coffee – Cancer and Organ damage
Coffee has been linked with secretion of gastric acids, in recent studies; it was revealed that decaf coffee contributes to gastric acid more as compared to normal coffee. This is because decaf coffee is made from robusta beans; increased gastric acid can cause diseases such as ulcers. Hence, normal coffee produces lesser gastric acids as compared to decaf coffee.

Coffee Vs Decaf Coffee – Cancer and Organ Damage
The decaffeination process involves use of chemicals, one of this chemical is methylene chloride. This chemical is toxic for the lungs, nervous system, live and central nervous system. Any individual who is exposed to this chemical for a prolonged time can suffer from organ damage and cancer. Since normal coffee does not have any chemicals, it is a much safer option as compared to decaf coffee.

  1. A helpful post. Thanks!
    But an important clarification, I think:

    Brewed coffee – 95-200 mg of caffeine.
    Brewed coffee decaffeiniated – 2-12 mg of caffeine

    This is not “97% less caffeine than normal…”
    THAT would put decaf in the 50-100 mg range.
    Decaf is more like: “up to 98% caffeine-free”

    Just in case readers get confused.
