Dear Folgers

Dear Folgers,

When Captn Rob doesn’t get his morning cup of piping hot Folgers coffee it makes him cranky. I have just finished my first pot of Mountain Grown Folgers coffee and I feel much better now.

Please disregard my prior post. Go Folgers!!!

Coffee puts the system under the strain of metabolizing a deadly acid-forming drug, depositing its insoluble cellulose, which cements the wall of the liver, causing this vital organ to swell to twice its proper size. In addition, coffee is heavily sprayed. (Ninety-two pesticides are applied to its leaves.) Diuretic properties of caffeine cause potassium and other minerals to be flushed from the body.

All this fear went away when I quit, and it was a book that inspired me to do it called The Truth About Caffeine by Marina Kushner. There are five things I liked about this book:

1) It details–thoroughly–the ways in which caffeine may damage your health.

2) It reveals the damage that coffee does to the environment. Specifically, coffee was once grown in the shade, so that trees were left in place. Then sun coffee was introduced, allowing greater yields but contributing to the destruction of rain forests. I haven’t seen this mentioned anywhere else.

3) It explains how best to go off coffee. This is important. If you try cold turkey, as most people probably do, the withdrawal symptoms will likely drive you right back to coffee.

4) Helped me find a great resource for the latest studies at

5) Also, if you drink decaf you won’t want to miss this special free report on the dangers of decaf available at

Dear Jacki Wyatt RD,

What a great response. I even understood some of it. I’m sure it all makes lots of good sense. I’ll pass it along to all the other campers. Did you see the report that told how many cups of coffee you had to drink in order to kill a person? Yea I found it fascinating too.

One day I am going to find out what an RD designation means and I’m sure we can then have a more meaningful discussion.

Hello there captn rob..Being a person who doesnt drink caffine..I can say, i dont understand a lick of it. So it makes no good sense to me. I know caffine is deadly, you know, like crack, guns, and other good violent stuff..Only just like cigarettes, people just kill themselves for fun. What a treat right?
