Cereal is the Best Breakfast - NOT!

March 06, 2011


I just read this article on a website called Nutrition Horizon that claims that a bowl of cereal with milk is the healthiest breakfast.

All I can say is "Wow." No wonder why this country's health is going to hell in a hand basket. I searched PubMed for the paper and it was nowhere to be found.

The article states:

The study shows that a breakfast consisting of milk and cereal is the healthiest.

The healthiest compared to what? And it wasn't a study - it was a survey of 12,000 Britons.

Come on now - are we expected to believe that a bowl of processed sugar loaded with gut glooping gluten and pasteurized cow's milk is the healthiest food we can eat?

For those of you who saw this or other articles like it, don't you believe it. A bowl of cereal with milk is one of the most unhealthful breakfasts you can have. I mean, would you feed a bowl of cereal to your dog? Of course not. So why would you eat it?
