I you have was a movement latter eighteen hundreds and into the nineteen hundreds. I. Gained a lot way more support than I could ever imagine nowadays. But basically, when did you say it started the eighteen hundreds? Yeah. Latter half the eighteen hundred. Okay. All right, and through until. It it. Really took off when Gwyneth paltrow gun control of. Eighteen fifty. So he being part of this movement I'm not gonNa tell you what they were all about yet. He believed that minimizing pleasure and stimulation of all kinds coupled with vegetarian diet anchored by bread made from weeked coarsely ground at home was how God intended people to live, and that falling this natural law would keep people healthy goal GBS, bread man. So he invented Graham. Crackers Bland course, not a lot of flavor. Perfect. Exactly, what Graham crackers are China ten. So he eventually inspired a little known duo named John, and will Kellogg Oh. They were brothers. So John was a doctor. He was a health activist and inventor a eugenicist. So check. Episode Season With Tom Foley. He was the. Episode to to dose our second episode ever. We talked about eugenics which is another positive episode, technically speaking our third episode ever curious on our first, very, very, very first episode finance on Patriot. That was shameless shows, very shameless advertising, but just can drop it out there. Shit. So, here's the director of the Battle Creek Sanitarium in Michigan his brother also worked there. I think he was like a janitor or something on I. Remember exactly not a not a high high place. Do you mean to tell me that you didn't do as much research as you should have, this wasn't the the main focus of my episode because he's not a Nazi. So I see that's that's where it mattered. So they believed in the temperance movement and they believed heavily in absence just like Utah and you know. Just like this Pacific state. Weird. So his. He promoted the development of an Aphrodisiac foods, which is where the plane tasteless cornflakes his brother used to make into a serial kingdom. Now to clarify, it's not like an Aphrodisiac, it's an hour and a half APHRODISIAC, the opposite. Yeah. This is not an African. Give you this, and then you're you're building our voice tres, Boehner would just go normal. But if you did not eat the oysters, your Weiner is inside you back in pretty much. Yeah. It's a magical experience. My God. It's you should try it. So yeah, we're doing right now. Graham, crackers. Persona, my mouth would be so dry. Through so he yeah, basically, John was the doctor. He tried out a whole bunch of stuff on those poor sanitarium. Crazies or just women who talk back. Because, we all know the women, the top talk back. It's not that they're like a problem. It's the their horny. That's. Crazy. And they the only I mean to fix, it is to prescribe chew hours of finger blasting. And Graham crackers. If, you don't know anything about how crazy people were treated in the. Late, eighteen hundreds and early nineteen hundreds that probably doesn't make any sense. So his. Yeah. So he was trying to create this just bland tasteless food to get people to stop jerking it, and eventually they they made a mistake in the processing of this. Brand and it became cornflakes and his brother was like. Oh, I can use this I'm going to be a millionaire. I mean hand I'm GonNa stop people from masturbating. The best is like he he thinks that these foods are basically post nut clarity. I think essential logs. First thing. First thing in the morning you. Kellogg you like I. Don't need crank one out before I. Go to school I'm set. I. Don't I'm not going to think about sex arrests. Today, I'm going to think about success and the Bible. Yeah. So they. They were heavily inspired by Sylvester. Graham. When they were creating that food and yeah, they they basically created these cornflakes to stave off the horn anus. To go into more of the personal beliefs of John. Kellogg, not the serial guy. But the Sierra Guy's brother if I hopefully don't have that mixed up her that'll suck he. Yeah. He thought that masturbation was the literally the worst thing that you could do I have a quote neither the plague nor war nor smallpox nor similar diseases have reduced results. So disastrous to humanity as the pernicious habit of an ISM. masturbating. In your own privacy. In your own home is worse than war smallpox and plague. I. Love This. MAZING. Like. I. Want this guy for president. Yeah, I'd. Sounds like he would really really lock things down. Yeah. I had heard of the temperance movement and I'd heard of these guys being crazy, but I didn't think they took themselves. Weren't leaking this crazy. Yeah. There are people in the temperance movement who were so crazy about like their diets. These vegetarian bland tasteless diets that I wish I could remember who it was. But I was reading a quote about a man who stated that his bowel movement smelled like a fresh biscuit on a summer day. He never white, he just goes. It's nice because every other day I am producing my own biscuits and gravy and it's phenomena. Oh, he's not producing any. No. Popeye biscuits and Sabi while he's in there, every morning don't don't don't make me feel better cornflakes. God Dude. YOUR FIBER INTAKE BUDDY That's all they had was fiber. That's all. So he warned heavily about masturbation related deaths, which is my favorite. Ever. told me I would happily find masturbated related. That's amazing. Did he did he state like Oh here? Some some things that happen again, jerk off and ripped off and not. I bet that he would say things like prostate cancer or ovarian or ovarian cancer uterine cancer was caused by masturbating to stupid scientists something. Cool. If you were impotent, it was because you jerked off.

"Very restrictive views on sex it was in his mind barely acceptable even within marriage and then only very infrequently it was certainly unacceptable outside of marriage and he was very very very very focused on people not masturbating ever he blamed masturbation for everything from poor posture to cancer. He was in favour of circumcision without anesthetic for boys and the application of carbolic acid to the clitoris for girls as an anti masturbation tool. Yes yes yikes. Acheson was thinking I just I'm sure listeners like me are feeling tense right at the moment right. They let me tell you about. Pete who loved hockey and always wanted to play in the NHL Pete played since he was three and and begged his mom to let him stay on the ice by some nights he even slept in his hockey skates. Pete practiced and practiced until one day when he was forty seven Pete realized he just wasn't that good so he threw his skates in the trash but then he heard Geico proud partner of the NHL good save money on car insurance so he switched and and saved a bunch so it all worked out so Jon Harvey Kellogg put all of these beliefs into active practice at the Battle Creek Sanitarium also known as the sand where he became the chief physician in eighteen seventy six when he was only twenty four he also opened a second sanitarium in Miami Springs Florida in Nineteen thirty-one the sand had been originally opened in eighteen sixty six as the western health reform institute the Tude which was a health facility based on seventh day adventists beliefs and practices the idea was to treat illnesses naturally into encourage people into preventative wellness practices basis so it's heart was in the right play for sure really especially considering the state of medicine at the time and it wasn't really all that successful before John got there there wasn't an official official medical staff and it housed only about twenty patients when John came on board so one of the first things that he did was to hire a staff of doctors and nurses he said about trying to to attract a clientele and his target market was primarily made up of people who had things we might think of today a stress related illnesses so harried businessmen experiencing interesting things like exhaustion in chronic indigestion a lot of what went on at the San were common sense wellness practices like eating healthy if extremely bland food good exercising in abstaining from alcohol tobacco and a lot of the things that you'd also think of when you hear the word spa like massages and nice relaxing baths but but it also had all kinds of the electrical vibrational treatments like we talked about earlier lots and lots of electric light therapies and animas and all the other other sorts of things that are sort of regarded as quackery today and it ended up becoming a retreat for the rich and some really famous people actually visited the sand to take the cure including John D. Rockefeller Amelia Earhart sojourner truth and Mary Todd Lincoln a fire destroyed part of the sanitarium in Nineteen Keno to including all of the main building but it was eventually rebuilt in nineteen. Oh three John's relationship with the church became strained after he published a book that didn't entirely match with the adventist doctrines he ultimately split from the Church and he set up the sanitarium as an independent entity with its own board making aging in a nondenominational institution. The San reached its height of popularity in nineteen. Oh six that year it received seven thousand guests and employed eighteen eight hundred staff it continued to operate until the Great Depression when financial circumstances forced John to sell it after sixty seven years and today's preponderance of breakfast. Chris Cereals is thanks in part to the sand where the biologic diet was so boring and monotonous that John was constantly looking for alternatives that fit the philosophical difficult criteria but also offered variety while John was the staff physician at the San his brother Will Keith Kellogg also known as W K Kellogg managed the sanitarium Tariam handling the books supplies the general maintenance all of that kind of stuff so while John was seeing to the medical end of things W. K. was handling pretty much all of the day to day running of the plate he administration yes and their relationship wasn't always on the best of terms John could be taskmaster and Nwea worked really long hours for very little pay allegedly seven days a week with no vacations for seven years which is interesting because it seems to contradict in his brother John's writings which to observe the Sabbath without working at all and he advocates for taking a vacation when you start to dream about work so yes he Azuma Belief W K had been working seven days a week for his taskmaster brother for seven years no vacation. He's probably dreaming about work offen- probably horrible nightmares stress so yet that John's seemed to be like you all should do this unless you are me unless you are where my brother one of the two of US working diligently to make sure the rest most of you do things yes. It's a little unclear exactly which of the Kellogg brothers really invented wheat flakes which were a wheat based version of what we think US cornflakes today that happened in eighteen ninety four and as is the case in quite a number of inventions. John claimed the idea for how to make these wheat flakes came to him in a dream. We've had that commitment several before but according to other sources as John had given UK this easy to digest but very disgusting disgusting to eat wheat paste and told him to try to make something good out of it W K left a batch of it out overnight where it started to dry out and and when he came in in the morning he rolled what was left through rollers and then baked it and it was actually pretty good and they named it grandma's yes. This wasn't the first ever breakfast cereal it's predate its predated by granular which was created by James Caleb Jackson that was made from gram flour and it was is not really delicious so it did not take off once it was introduced John also made a serial made of cornmeal and oatmeal biscuits which were then ground it named Granola and they actually got sued and they had to rename it Granola. Guess probably was not smartest idea to make that was like your competitors thing in the name of the same thing then you might get sued it was also predated by shredded wheat which was invented by Henry Perky of Colorado in eighteen ninety three he had promised to sell John Shredding machine which he was going to use to make his own shredded wheat. He never delivered which is one of the things that led to this experimentation of making cereals sales from other foods and wil John's started sanitize food company in eighteen ninety seven to sell their cereal in their first year. They sold more than one hundred thousand in pounds of Grandma's. Their factory is it was called was actually a barn on the grounds of the sand. They brought out cornflakes in eighteen ninety eight and the profit margin was huge and people figured this out. Suddenly there were a lot of competitors one was. CW post who founded what became the post cereal company who who was a former sanitarium patient and post distributed a pamphlet called the road twelve ill with his cereals. The novel in leader Movie Got Their name from that pamphlet post. Earliest products were postal which was a coffee substitute made from cereal to give me a little bit of a chicken scratch to go from try that and grape nuts grape nuts still survive today. John was really reluctant to promote the sale of these serials. He was afraid that it was going to somehow reflect badly on the sand. Dan so his brother did it all on his own putting together a marketing campaign that included everything from door to door taste tests too big window displays and in eighteen ninety while John on was abroad will actually went ahead and built a factory to replace the barn which John made him pay fifty thousand dollars for after he returned we'll also took advantage edge of one of John's trips abroad to add sugar cornflakes which of course deepened the divide between them. Yes John of course was not in favor of adding sugar to anything they did kind of men things a little bit they established the Battle Creek toasted cornflake company in nineteen o six will own the third of it and John. Own other two-thirds Hugh thirds. The employees were mostly paid in stock because John was not a general ah generous person when it came to giving people money so once it's again employing this sort of quick he's not looking strategy will would quietly by up the employees stock that they were being paid in while John was away so he eventually league through doing this gained a controlling share in the company and was able to to basically kick his brother out of it. That's quite a sibling relationship. Yeah they the team to have the most loving and supportive feeling between them yeah the Kellogg cereal story goes on from the air but long story short art the Kellogg Company became a Juggernaut. It was doing good business by the twenties so by the time the Great Depression took hold people were thinking of cereals is daily staples and while the idea of a health spa had become completely frivolous expense the Kellogg Company thus became this huge institution of a provision provision but John unfortunately mostly became considered something of a joke yet his wife. Ella died in nineteen twenty. John himself had wanted to live to be a hundred but he died on December fourteenth nineteen forty-three in Battle Creek at the age of ninety one. His cause of death was in ammonia..

Wholesalers roasters and customers alike struggled to differentiate between the two kellogg companies anthony's even the post office getting their mail mixed up once john begins manufacturing rice and wheat flakes. He makes his packaging indistinguishable bowl from his brother's cornflakes. The brothers have now both threatened the other with lawsuits. Their lawyers are poised for action just waiting for the word as he makes his way through downtown battle creek. We'll consider his options. He knows an ugly court battle hurt the company's brand. Getty eighty cannot stomach the idea of being exploited by his brother yet again. What's more willis obligated to defend the interests of his investors. John mauer competitor competitor a threat to the livelihoods of everyone who works at kellogg's we'll cannot sit by as sales or lost as bad as he wants to fight and when he figures he has to take one final shot at reconciliation to avoid courtroom showdown his dreadful hand-wringing is suddenly intolerable eligible to him now is the time we'll changes direction he heads north of michigan avenue and crosses the spaniel arched bridge approach that stretches over the glimmering waters battle creek he then heads west through the leafy streets and pass the sprawling fenced off grounds of the battle creek week sanitarium thirty minutes later he reaches john's large gothic revival home on manchester street will marches up painted needed white steps to the front door that twenty room house john calls the residents he removes his straw hat mops his sweaty brow and bangs to brass door knocker john's wife ella opens the door.

John will is at the door as they wait for john will in l. a. eyeball each other on the doorstep in frosty silence they no longer pretend not to hate each other eventually.

A. snaps at will yes it has it's about time you stopped using john's good name to enrich yourself wills composure snaps me me. He's the one riding on my coattails. He never cared about the cereal business until he saw my success now. He wants it from self because he cannot stand anyone anyone but him getting the glory how dare you we both know that i am the real kellogg. They buy your cereal because they think i'm the one selling it. Your success is a parasite parasite on mine will looks down and steadies himself against the bile of his hatred. He reminds himself why he's here and forces out a reasonable tone own john. What you're doing will ruin both our companies. If this ends up in court it will embarrass us. Both l. sets off so do what john says. John cuts across his wife ellen. Please but will speak. Thank you let me clear brother. I will go to court if i must. I just hope and pray that there's a better way to resolve this after our negotiating on the doorstep john and will reach an agreement john will stop selling cereals under the kellogg nick in return will will pay john fifty thousand dollars plus additional stock in the cornflakes business. It's the two brothers shake hands but the truce lasts less than a month a few weeks later. John has a change of heart and hostilities resume for the next two years. The animosity subterfuge and retaliation escalates as does the success of their cereal companies under will's autocratic leadership kellogg toasted cornflakes company thrives nineteen ten. He's selling millions of boxes axes of flaked breakfast cereal every year john's enjoying more modest success with his newest product sterilized brand. It's a serial made from the fiber. Rich outer layer of wheat grain john's promoting it as a constipation remedy. It's a powerful selling point in one thousand nine. John sells around a hundred thousand boxes of sterilized brand. The sales of sterilized brand aren't much of a threat to will cereal empire but john's copycat packaging coaching is unlike will john refuses to add salt sugar and other flavorings to his breakfast cereals that worries

Let's give on the news. I don't know what the fuck we're talking about. Now, I'll guide us in. So we got a little this week and food history. Baby. Right. So in nineteen zero six the battle creek toasted Cornflake company was founded by a will Keith Kellogg to manufacturer everybody's favourite breakfast cereal. Cornflakes? Yeah. So that was this week in one thousand nine hundred six okay? So now, the company is obviously known as Kellogg's you guys all know that their products are manufactured in eighteen different languages and marketed in over a hundred eighty countries and their brands include such conic food products as jiffy eggos Rice Krispies cheese it pop tarts, Pringles and other seemingly hippie brands like bare naked and Kashi like holy shit. Right. There's a lot even less than even like a sixteenth of their portfolio. There's a lot of like hippy companies that I'm like, oh, you just owned by Pepsi. Yeah. But when it gets much crazier than that. So cornflakes were originally developed by w f Kellogg and his brother John Harvey Kellogg to feed the people staying at their other business venture the battle creek sanitarium. There's a lot of questions. So so the Kellogg family had they had a sanitarium. Yeah. And so it was like in battle creek. Yeah. I'm just in. He was okay. I'll keep listening. There's a I'm trying to pay attention to this shit. Does not make sense. Okay. So if that wasn't weird enough John Harvey Kellogg was extremely anti-sex. Okay. He famously never consummated his marriage and all of his children were adopted. Okay. So naturally he was against masturbation as well. Okay. Even more. So so here's a close dude as patient zero of insoles. Quote, if elicit commerce of the sexes is a heinous act or a heinous sin rather Kellogg road, self pollution is a crime, double doubly abominable don't masturbate. So he thinks masturbation is twice as bad as sex, and he thought sex was so bad. He never fucked. His wife, those Kerr's poor woman. You know, he'd be so bad at that probably for the best. I choose probably masturbating where she could get matching what kinda shit he would have been into anyway. He thought masturbation was the source of tons of ailments. And so he was really committed to stamping it out at his facility there in battle creek. Okay. So that's what he was focused on. And he thought that meet and certain flavorful or season foods increased sexual desire, and that plainer food, especially cereals nuts could curb it. So he just walks into his family sanitarium. Well, he and he's like all these all these crazy people are just horny. I need they need. They need bland food. It wasn't just for crazy people. Also at the beginning a place where the like elites went to recuperate and get into well house. So it kind of started like a wellness sort of spa thing like with rigor, and then kind of devolved, but I don't think when I hear the word sanitarium. I don't think like resort. Conditions. Sign of the times. So so he thought plain food could curb sexual desire. So he developed cornflakes and granola and feted all of his patients. Okay. So his brother saw the potential in the products and began selling them to the masses leaving out all the masturbation fucking craziness. Right. And it led to a falling out between the brothers zero regional Kellogg. Cereal was it like Dr bronner's. But it it had all the tax owners, Dr Boehner's Kellogg shoes.
