Looking through the offerings at Reddit.com tonight, I noticed a headline suggesting that Dr. Kellogg developed corn flakes as a remedy for masturbation, which he considered to be a great threat to law and order. I hadn’t heard this claim before I viewed this documentary by Terry Jones (of Monty Python fame), but it’s true. I’ll never think of corn flakes the same way again.
And I now have it on my list to watch the entire documentary by Terry Jones: “The Surprising History of Sex and Love” (2002). It looks like it was especially well written and produced.
