No, I don't want to live any longer than necessary. I'm also pretty sure the cereal they're talking about and the cereal I'm thinking of are two different things.

I don't actually eat a TON of cereal, but my morning always starts off with a shake rich in wheat bran and scillium fibre as well as fresh whole fruit.

How can my only choices be, "I will," or "I don't like cereal"? How about, "No, but I still like cereal"?

My breakfast, every morning, is a smoothie, made with a nutrient extracter. I get all the fiber, I need, in that.

I'll need to look up the study and find out what they mean by "cereal fiber" since I'm diabetic and need to watch my carb counts.

Breakfast is usually an individual carton of low fat yogurt. When I eat cereal, I prefer cherios, kix, or shredded wheat. I am not big on sweetened cereals.

I'm not a big breakfast eater but on those rare occasions I usually eat fruit and occasionally I will eat Cherrios or Oatmeal depending on the weather & temperature.

I'm 99.99% sure that the study probably found that regularly consuming cereal GRAINS was the important thing-- like those plants overseen by the goddess Ceres, such as rice, wheat, or millet-- not eating breakfast cereal, which is usually a highly processed "food".

Here is some context about the research study: http://www.cnn.com/2015/03/27/health/cereal-long-life/

The "19% reduced risk of death" refers to the fact that this diet appears to reduce mortality rates across the board, especially among cancer or diabetes related deaths. It's just worded poorly, since it should say that the diet "reduces mortality rates among those suffering from fatal medical conditions by a factor of 19%".

I believe Harvard is wrong I already eat a lot of cereal, however with that being said I'm
very certain that I will still DIE and not be one of the 19% who they say have a reduced risk
of dying...just saying, no matter what I WILL DIE it is a certainty

One reported survey is not enough info to make a change. Who sponsored or paid for the survey? How large a survey was it? Ages of people in group surveyed? etc.

19% reduced risk of death.... hmmm..... lol... does that mean whoever falls within that category lives forever?? cause of cereal?? .... very alarming wording that statement has ... if nothing else in this world is certain, death is!!
what does that boil down to in reality?? 1 month longer than non-cereal eaters and at what age 99 ?? numbers must be set into context ...

Public Health is managed by big companies, and not backed by real science, and Public Health is usually about medicine and not nutrition, so do not believe what "Public Health." It is just a way for more companies to get more money from you and keep you as a customer.

What the hell do you mean by "19% reduced risk of death"? Death from what? Death in general? You are 100% likely to die from drinking water because death is inevitable. If this study is real, it's retarded. I'm guessing it isn't, though.

Living in an Asian household where we regularly eat rice sold in 50-lb. bags and prepared in a ricecooker, I'm sure we get enough grains in our diet.

No because it's not very filling and tends to be high in calories for how empty it makes me feel. I prefer something with a lot of protein to keep my full.

I don't mind cereal, but I get bored eating the same type of food all the time. Sometimes I'll eat cereal, sometimes eggs, sometimes yogurt or fruit.
