Americans love cereal! The cereal aisle is one of the most densely populated sections of the grocery store, lined with boxes upon boxes of fortified and enriched contents.

  • They are both highly processed foods
  • Both need to be “fortified” with vitamins and minerals to have any value
  • They both cause ill health and disease in the unlucky consumer
