Decaf Buzz

If you're making sure your coffee is decaf to avoid the buzz, your insides may be buzzing anyway.

Researchers at the University of Florida analyzed the caffeine content of twenty-two decaffeinated beverages and found only one was truly caffeine free. For example, two latte's had as much caffeine as a regular soda about thirty milligrams.

While the caffeine levels were much lower than a normal cup of coffee it could still pose a problem for people on certain prescription medications that tell you to avoid the stimulant for health reasons.

 The study warns those who drink several cups of "decaf" a day could end up with as much caffeine as regular coffee.
