    If coffee stunted your growth I would be 6 inches tall.

    myth. don't even worry about it. Coffee actually has many great health benefits. Not bad for you other than caffeine is addictive (though basically harmless).

    It's a myth and if I could reach that book on the top shelf I'd prove it.
