The coffee drinker seldom realises
that coffee contains the drug, caffeine,
a severe poison to the heart and
nerves, causing many forms of dis-
ease, noticeably dyspepsia.
"1 was a lover of coffee and uaed It
for many years, and did not realise tha
bad effects I waa suffering from Its
use. (Tea la Just as Injurious as cof-
fee because IL too, contains caffeine,
the same drug found In coffee.)
"At first I was troubled with lndlgea

attacks I had sick headache, nausea,

“I consulted a physician; waa told
all my troubles came from lndlgea

grow worse from year to year until It
developed Into chronic diarrhea, naur

could keep nothing on my stomach and
