Sugar Pusher Harvey Wiley

My research for my book Coca Forgotten Medicine has led to many interesting things. Amongst these was a document "Habit-Forming Agents: Their Indiscriminate Sale and Use A Menace to the Public Welfare" by the USDA of Harvey Wiley.

Notably, the USDA "Farmer's Bulletin" containing this article contains an immediate preceding article that ends upon a quote by Wiley himself regarding all of the work he had done promoting the sugar industry.

That's pretty ironic for a man supposedly against "habit forming agents".
