 The Origin of Graham Crackers - OneCook.com   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Graham was absolutely convinced of the merits of eating only vegetables - mostly because he was also thoroughly convinced that people who didn't eat meat wouldn't drink alcohol, either.
What is certain is that "graham bread" and the "graham cracker" (another name for which is "digestive biscuit") really caught on.
Graham had this flour prepared for him as a special order; then as others joined the veggie bandwagon — and climbed on the no-booze "wagon," too - the demand for the flour grew and grew, until it became generally available to all.

The Reverend Sylvester Graham, a Presbyterian minister who became a social reformer and a ferocious advocate of healthful living, is the man who put the 'graham' into the treat we now know and love as graham crackers.

 Porn Flakes - John Harvey Kellogg, Sylvester Graham
Graham was by no means the first to decry the debilitating effects of masturbation; Judeo-Christian tradition has long considered it an evil, a barrier to the natural function of sexuality -- reproduction.
Graham used this to his advantage; in fact, he found most any health problem could be tied to masturbation.
The medical profession was evil, according to Graham, and, besides, there was no need for it since: "Disease is never the legitimate result of the normal operation of any of our organs." All irritations or excitements such as hunger or sexual desire exhausted the body and increased the chance of disease and death.

 The Straight Dope: Is it true graham crackers were invented to cure the dread fever of lust?
While eating graham crackers recently, we were discussing the myth that they were invented to keep girls from engaging in, uh, self-abuse.
Health lecturer Sylvester Graham (1794-1851) was trying to save shattered lives--not just of women, but everybody who suffered from what Graham referred to variously as "venereal excess" or "aching sensibility." Graham thought intense physical desire, no matter how expressed and regardless of whether you were married or not, was guaranteed to have dire physiological consequences.
Graham crackers, which Graham invented in 1829, were another manifestation of the same idea.

 Graham is Crackers!
Graham first based his opposition to the use of force in Iraq on what he said is the inability of our government to fight Saddam and various terrorist movements at the same time.
In fact, Graham told CBS News reporter Charles Osgood last December that...”We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has...a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction.” So how does Graham’s “whole truth” differ from what the president said about Saddam’ capabilities.
Graham was also quoted in the Washington Times as saying...”we should have pursued the war on terrorism to victory before moving to Iraq.” One must wonder what his criteria are, and how Graham defines “victory.” Nevermind that there has been no attack on the US homeland since 9/11/01 and the followup anthrax letters.
