   "Just before he [Hitler] came to power he began to have stomach
   pains after a meal, sometimes while he was still eating. That this
   ailment could be noticed was as distressing to him as the pain
   itself. Thereafter he would forego meat dishes, and even pastries
   of which he was fond.<16>" (Hilberg, Raul. Perpetrators, Victims, 
   Bystanders: The Jewish Catastrophe, 1933-1945. New York: Harper-
   Collins Publishers, 1992.) There is no apparent connection
   between this and his addiction to amphetamines.
