When I was in high school and started drinking coffee my
mother was against it. She told me that drinking coffee would
stunt my growth and that it was not for children. Since then, I
always hear people say exactly what my mother told me about
coffee and wonder whether it is true or if it is just a way of
getting kids to not drink coffee.
