Were Graham Crackers Invented to Kill Sex Drive?

Graham Crackers are a staple for s’mores… but they were originally invented to kill your sex drive!

Reverend Sylvester Graham believed lust physically harmed the body and that meat, booze and fatty foods led to increased sexual desires. He advocated a strict vegetarian and high-fiber diet to minimize pleasure.

His preachings influenced the creation of “graham bread” that is made from coarsely ground wheat flour. But who actually made the first graham cracker is disputed. Some say Graham did in 1829. Others say the cracker first appeared in 1882 decades after the preacher’s death.
