Hitler's Caffeine Injections

Adolf Hitler's personal physician, Theodor Gilbert Morell, was a noted quack. Almost everyone besides the Führer, himself, regarded Morell as opportunistic, lazy, and generally a terrible doctor. Hitler, however, was enamored with the man, and -- especially towards the end of the war -- came to rely on the daily doses of substances that Morrell supplied. Included in Morell's many injections and pills were amphetamines, E. Coli, methamphetamine, morphine, strychnine, testosterone, various vitamins, and, of course, caffeine!
