Hmmm…I seem to remember something from one of my college classes listing broccoli as a carcinogen. Perhaps I am wrong—can’t find reference on the ‘net. Regular coffee though (caffeine) is definitely carcinogenic. So, scratch the broccoli, keep the coffee. My mistake, all apologies. As for hugs, I grew up with lots of them. Kisses too—I grew up greeting family, no matter how extended, with a hug and 1 if not 2 kisses. For that reason, I think, I had absolutely no problem in Argentina when I was greeted that way, although some people clearly expected me to be taken aback. My SIL was very uncomfortable, by comparison. I swear, I’ve never been hugged and kissed by so many men in so short a period of time as when I was sitting down at a milonga in BsAs, and friends were coming by to chat with my host! It translates, too, to the Latino gentlemen in my AT scene. Not so sure about cyber-hugs though, don’t know why.
