I know it sounds like one of those typical "WTF dude?!" threads we get here on ATS. But if you give me a second I'll show you that I'm completely
I was looking into some nutritional detail of Kellogg's products, when I spotted a section called "Anti-sex and Anti-masturbation positions" in the
John Harvey Kellogg Article
Apparently John Kellogg was a big "anti-sex"/"anti-masturbation" activist. You'll find that he was actually on such a far end of the spectrum
that he didn't have sexual intercourse with his wife even once in their 40 years of marriage... In fact he worked on his book "Plain Facts" on
(For those still trying to figure out who John Harvey Kellogg was - he was the co-inventor of the breakfast cereal "Kellogg's Corn Flakes".)
If you read some of John Kellogg's work you'll find stuff like
A remedy for masturbation which is almost always successful in small boys is circumcision. The operation should be performed by a surgeon without
administering an anesthetic, as the brief pain attending the operation will have a salutary effect upon the mind, especially if it be connected with
the idea of punishment. In females, the author has found the application of pure carbolic acid [phenol] to the clitoris an excellent means of allaying
the abnormal excitement.
In his work "Plain Facts for Old and Young" he wrote...
a plain and healthy diet, with only two meals a day, among other things, would reduce sexual feelings. Those experiencing temptation were to avoid
stimulating food and drinks, and eat very little meat, if any. Kellogg also advocated hydrotherapy and stressed the importance of keeping the colon
clean through yogurt enemas.
So clearly John Kellogg thought there's link between a person's diet and his sexual desires (lust). Did he actually "design" Kellogg's corn
flakes to subdue sexual desires?
We're all aware that things like chocolates, oysters, etc. are supposedly aphrodisiacs. Could there not be an "anti-aphrodisiac"? Could Kellogg's
be trying to take away people's sexual drive? Can we take it a step further? Are they messing with our children's sexual development and desires?
For the record:
This is not a typical "anti-product" campaign. All the information and the history of John Kellogg and the product is public information available
for everyone to read:

I have no agenda
and nothing specific against Kellogg's Corn Flakes. Except that it's possibly the most boring cereal on the market.
