The history of cereal and milk you never knew - how corn flakes became corn flakes, cereal created as health food, and why lactose intolerant people are actually normal. Now I wonder about the history of baby carrots.

A follow-up episode about the history of non-dairy milk would be interesting, e.g. almond milk, soy milk, coconut milk, rice milk, etc.
