Researchers have made an interesting discovery after examining a U.S.
Department of Agriculture database on how much of each type of food
Americans eat – Americans receive more antioxidants from coffee than
from any other dietary source. While researchers are quick to state
this does not mean coffee is necessarily the best source of
antioxidants, it is a major source. For you tea drinkers, black tea was
the second-leading source of antioxidants in the U.S. diet. Coffee
drinkers still need to heed caution and ensure consumption is kept in
moderation as excessive consumption has many negative effects.
