(NaturalNews) Breakfast cereals are a multi-billion dollar industry. Unpublished studies have shown that rats eating the boxes of cereals lived longer than those eating the cereal itself. The large corporate food industry with its many lobbyists have successfully kept all research on the dangers of cold cereals out of published journals. A healthy breakfast includes eating nutrient dense, real foods such as pastured eggs, raw smoothies, fresh organic vegetable juice, soaked oatmeal or "porridge" and raw, pastured dairy foods.

Save your money

Boxed breakfast cereals are one of the highest profit-making processed foods in the food industry. A few cents worth of grains are transformed into flakes and other shapes and resold for several dollars per box.

Details of the extruding process

The extruding process uses high heat and pressure to make cereal flakes and other shapes. This processing changes the molecular structure of the cereal protein to produce a neurotoxin. The extruding process is the same for both organic and conventional cereals. The processing destroys the majority of other nutrients found in cereal, even the synthetic vitamins that are added. Because organic cereals usually contain more whole grains, these cereals end up being more toxic to consumers. Conventional cereals have the added danger of often containing genetically modified ingredients, along with more sugar and unsafe artificial additives.

What the studies show

Stitt describes an experiment, conducted in 1942, by a cereal company but locked away in the company's file cabinet. In the study four sets of rats were given special diets. The rats given vitamins, water and puffed wheat died within two weeks. The rats given white sugar and water lived one month. The rats given water and vitamins lived two months, while those fed whole wheat, water and vitamins lived more than a year.

Another unpublished experiment performed in 1960 at the University of Michigan involved 18 lab rats divided into three groups. The rats fed cornflakes and water died first and also exhibited abnormal behavior, biting each other and developing convulsions. The second group, fed the cereal's cardboard box and water, died second of malnutrition. The control group, fed rat chow and water, remained in good health throughout the experiment. The surprise finding was that the rats fed a cardboard box lived longer than those fed the cornflakes.

What's for breakfast?

When looking for breakfast foods, choose real foods that are not processed. Good breakfast choices include high quality, organic pastured eggs, eaten raw in smoothies or cooked. Eggs can be cooked as delicious omelets with vegetables and cheese, sunny side up, soft or hard boiled. Eating eggs with the yolk uncooked leaves more nutrients intact.

Another delicious, nutritious breakfast is porridge or breakfast grains such as oats soaked overnight in an acidic mixture and then cooked in the morning. The overnight soaking releases nutrients and breaks down the phytic acid of grains helping with digestion. Porridge eaten with butter and raw milk increases the nutrient density of this breakfast.

If in a hurry, a smoothie made with raw pastured eggs, yogurt, raw coconut cream, coconut oil, organic frozen berries/veggies and other preferred super foods can be taken to go. Raw pastured milk, yogurt, kefir and cheese are another quick, nutritious breakfast option. Fresh organic vegetable juice can also help jump start your day.


There are many good breakfast options, but the most important thing to remember is to eat real food, while avoiding expensive, processed breakfast cereals. Just remember that lab rats did better eating the box, when you are considering spending your hard earned money on expensive breakfast cereal.
