Millet in the morning, Millet in the Evening

Millet is one of those overlooked "primo" food sources. Millet was of greater prevalence in prehistory than rice, even in China. Dr. John Harvey Kellog, King of Cornflakes (along with his brother), who ran a sanitarium practicing holistic methods, and hence knew a thing or two about health AND cereal grains, said millet was so nutritious 'man can live on millet alone'. Sadly, not a whit of millet is found in Cornflakes, or else they'd be called MilletFlakes.

While on the subject, we're not too sure whether the high fructose corn syrup Cornflakes once sported has fallen semantic prey to the "clean-up-your-labels" corporate programs afoot, and is now aka'ing as "glucose-fructose corn syrup". Perhaps, they have really removed it. What a loser I'd be if this be the case, but collective experience has taught me never to trust what an inorganic legal entity has to say on matters regarding my organic body. My organic body, to me, is something that carries my life, but is regarded by said legal entities merely as a "commodity" which, when attached to a credit score, becomes a preferred "consumer". Caveat emptor, all is fair game in a guns and butter economy.
