Have you ever stopped to wonder where your grain comes from and why it was made in the first place?
No, I won't either.
But this week, thousands of people on the internet have become very excited about the history of Kellogg's Corn Flakes, and all of that is thanks to a viral post on Facebook and Twitter.
This post encourages people to ask Google why corn flakes were discovered, adding: "Thank you later".
Many people started inquiring about the design of a humble corn flake to find something very shocking.
John Kellogg, a physician and anti-racist campaigner, believes that eating a modest diet will help reduce sexual urges.
Thus some people think that its corn flakes, being gentle, were developed to prevent people from experiencing these requests and enjoying themselves.
This unusual theory has recently reverted to a new book, Turned On: Science Sex and Robots by Kate Devlin, which claims that breakfast was invented as "anti-masturbation breakfast."
However, before you tell all your friends, it seems like this may not be the case at all.
As the weird theories about corn flakes go online, fact-checking tool Snopes.com decided to dig in a bit.
They say that it's "anti-masturbation". The claims are largely false – as Kellogg never made a special grain announcement.
In a post on his site, he explains: "The creation of Corn Flakes was part of JH Kellogg's extensive advocacy for a simple, humble diet.
"Without specifically mentioning corn flakes, Kellogg recommends a simple, gentle diet as one of many methods to discourage masturbation elsewhere."
They added: "According to available evidence, corn flakes were made primarily for the Kellogg Sanitarium patients in Michigan as an easy-to-digest, pre-prepared and healthful breakfast food. This product was never announced. & # 39; Anti-masturbation meal & # 39;.
"[The phrase] Instead it begins with a 2012 article in Mental Floss, which states that & # 39; Kellogg developed a few different flaked cereal cereals – including corn flakes – for a healthy, ready-to-eat anti-masturbation breakfast meal. & # 39; "
Whether it is true or not, we can all agree that there is nothing particularly sexy about corn flakes, as Devlin happily states in his book: "After visiting the Corn Flakes factory, I can confirm that it is the least I have. Was one of the exciting places. Anytime. "
