Topic: OT Coffee and blood type (62 lines)

Just my two cents from a lurker who also happens to be in the health
profession:
Please be very careful of any major lifestyle changes.  Do your research,
and do it well.  Choose reliable sources for your information.  I would be
highly suspicious of anything on the internet; especially dot coms etc., as
well as any information published by any person/company that has any
financial interest in whatever it is that they are spouting.  Some of the
emails I have read on this topic are fairly accurate, while other are not
so.  All I'm saying is do your homework.  Sometimes a little information is
more dangerous than none at all.

p.s. one more thing:  all "health nuts" will eventually die.  It doesn't
mean that they were failures or frauds; it means that they were mortal :-)

Ken,
You may be thinking of Jim Fixx. He wrote a book that boosted jogging as a
fad. IIRC, he had heart trouble and decided to lose weight, which brought
him to jogging. I seem to recall that he died of a heart attack, but that
was in part due to his having become overconfident of the benefits of
jogging, and so he had stopped monitoring the heart. That's the way I recall
it, anyway, could be mistaken.

Who was the famous health "expert" who died while jogging many years ago?
Was it Kenneth Cooper? I suspect he did not drink enough coffee. :-) 
Why is coffee and caffeine so universally frowned upon by medical doctors
and alternative health people?
I also recently found out that a "famous" alternative health practitioner,
writer, raw foodist, and supplier of dietary supplements, Karl Loren, had a 
stroke last Christmas Day.  He is recovering and now writing about stroke
treatment. His web info was instrumental in my conversion to a (mostly) raw
diet. http://www.oralchelation.com/
