If every claim made by breakfast cereal manufacturers were true, we would be a nation of seven foot tall, Olympic class supermen / superwomen.

It's interesting how the advertising of shredded wheat has changed. Back then, it had "improved wheat protein." Now it's touted as wheat and nothing but wheat.

As a child: improved wheat protein. As an executive: cocaine for breakfast.

And today shreaded wheat is personna non gratus due to the gluten epidemic that affects everyone in the world.
