In Part 1 Klemp suggests that "coffee"
is bad for ECKists' health due to the
caffeine. However he never mentions
the caffeine in tea. Also, on the news
today, I heard that a study was done
that showed that Coffee and Tea may
ward off Diabetes. Plus, one can always
In the next story below Klemp is complaining
about his mother making him drink his
milk which had cream in it. Thus when
her back was turned he would pour it
back into the pitcher and mislead her
into thinking he drank it. Today, he stills
thinks that this was not a lie and that
"stretching the truth" was/is okay. Also,
milk in those days, and on the farm,
did not have Vitamin-D added, thus,
HK came down with rickets, although,
no one else in his family did.
BTW-Another reason why many people
today don't have a Vitamin-D deficiency
is due to Starbucks since they put a lot
of Vitamin-D enriched milk into their
products. Thus, another reason why coffee
can be good for the health. Also, in the
Middle East coffee is drank in order to
protect oneself from heat stroke. Therefore,
once again Klemp misses the mark and
has taken a narrow-minded and one
dimensional approach to the topic of "health."
