So Denmark has banned several Kellogg's products, including Corn Flakes, citing that they are damaging to the liver and kidneys if consumed regularly. What up with that? Genuine health concern or economic-political move? Your thoughts?

That is really strange!!! If that is the case you think the FDA would be involved or at least looking into the cereals produced here in the States!!! It can't be a hoax cause they have Kellog's reps making comments on it. I think this an issue that should definately be researched more throughly!!

Hey it's strange when I saw this thread about Kellogg's cereal, I remembered an incident that happened to me a few years ago.
One morning my daughter opened a box of Kellogg's cornflakes and there was hair all through it! ACTUALLY baked into it. It was so GROSS.
Naturally I was outraged and called the toll free number on the box. You know where it says questions or comments call 800...whatever?
They directed to me to some complaint department and I told the lady who took the call about the hair. She asked for a number that was printed on the box and also asked me to describe the hair. I told her it was light colored. Which it was! She then apologized profusely and they sent me some coupons for free cereal in the mail.
I've never bought Kellogg's cornflakes since!

It's not a hoax. Being a Dane myself, I wondered this topic as I hadn't read anything about it in the papers here but I did a bit of research and found the apparent reasoning behind the ban.

Apparently the Health Department feels that the products are too rich in vitamin B, iron and folic acid. They claim that it has adverse effects on pregnancies and that the products can cause damage to the liver, kidneys and central nervous system. The problem is with getting too many vitamins and the Health Department as well a number of organizations all agree that we get plenty of vitamins through a normal diet.

The ban is a part of a larger plan to get rid of enriched products that sell themselves as being healthy while actually being bad for you.

Kellogg's, obviously, is whining about strict rules.

I cannot say why your FDA is not doing the same, though I imagine Kellogg's brandishing a bit more power in the US than in a small country of five million people.

Nutrients should come from the food we eat, not supplements in most cases. While eating too much of any vitamin or mineral can be harmful, it's not likely to have damage from eating enriched cereal. It's just not enriched enough. While the idea of too much of a good thing is accurate, banning a cereal is not necessary. You'd have to eat a hell of a lot of it to see any sort of negative effect.

And while it's true that eating a balanced diet and good food means you don't really need enriched things, most people don't. Most people in the US don't, that is.
