I read about a study that showed that wearing the SHIRT COLLAR too tight
reduced the blood supply to the brain. The amazing thing was that 67%
of men in the study had tight collars. (Collars shrink over time from
dry cleaning.) Now, combine that with the impairment caused by
carbon monoxide buildup in the blood when you smoke ... it's no wonder
coffee is the lifeblood of industry.
