Coffee break

It's your call

October 12, 1990

Most people aren't concerned about the caffeine in their coffee. At least that's what callers to The Evening Sun's survey on SUNDIAL believe. A major new study published yesterday concluded that caffeinated coffee is almost certainly harmless to your heart, although decaf may be another story.

Our "It's Your Call" question yesterday asked readers four questions about their coffee-drinking habits. Most callers (212) said they drink coffee; 57 said they don't. One hundred-seventy-nine callers said they drink caffeinated coffee; 96 said they don't. Only 92 said they drink decafeinated coffee; ++ 182 said they don't. Eighty-nine people said they drink decaf coffee because of its possible affect on their health; 147 people said they don't.

"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically as a scientific public opinion poll would be.
