The coffee drinker Beldom realizes
that coffee contains the drug, caffeine,
a aevere poison to the heart and
nerves, causing many formB of dis
ease, noticeably dyspepsia.
I was a lover of coffee and UBed It
for many years, and did not realize the)
bad effects I was suffering from Its
use. (Tea is Just as Injurious as cof
fee because It, too, contains caffeine,
the same drug found in coffee.)
At first I was troubled with Indiges
tion. I did not attribute the trouble
to the use of coffee, but thought It
arose from other causes. With these
attacks I had sick headache, nausea
and vomiting. Finally my stomach
was in such a condition I could scarce
ly retain any food.
"I consulted a physician; was told
all my troubles came from Indiges
tion, but was not Informed what
caused the indgestton. I kept on with
the coffee, and kept on with the trou
bles, too, and my case continued to
grow worBe from year to year until It
developed Into chronic diarrhea, nau
sea and severe attacks of vomiting. I '
could keep nothing on my stomach and
became a mere shadow, reduced from
159 to 128 pounds.

headaches were less frequent, nausea
and vomiting only came on at long In
tervals and I was soon a changed man,
feeling much better.
"Then I thought I could stand coffee
again, but as soon as I tried It my old
troubles returned and I again turned
to Postum. Would you believe it,
did this three times before I had sense
enough to quit coffee for- good and
keep on with the Postum. I am now a
well man with no more headaches, sick
stomach or vomiting, and have al
ready gained back to 147 pounds.1
