Carrie Nation attacked demon rum. John Harvey Kellogg invented corn flakes as breakfast food without meat — designed to reduce the sexual drive. Reducing bestial animal desire through food was the order of the day, and it was even thought you could pass on less original sin to your kids this way. Sylvester Graham invented Graham flour for this purpose, a shield against vile affections.
