    Birth name was Jerome Irving Cohen
    Father raised him to be a rabbi

    On The Dick Cavett Show, he claimed he was going to live to 100 years old, however he died on the show at 72 (1971).
    He never used shampoo, because he felt that vigorously rubbing his head would clean it.
    He never conducted legitimate scientific research, but accepted reader's hearsay that agreed with him as factual.
    In the 20's, he changed his last name from Cohen to Rodale, because he thought having a Jewish name is a handicap.
