Cheerios - Doping at Giro d'Italia

On May 5, 2009, the Food and Drug Administration issued a warning letter to General Mills indicating they are marketing Cheerios as a drug.
Based on claims made on your product's label, we have determined that your Cheerios® Toasted Whole Grain Oat Cereal is promoted for conditions that cause it to be a drug because the product is intended for use in the prevention, mitigation, and treatment of disease...
In other news, Lance Armstrong tested positive for whole grain oats and is out of the Giro d'Italia tour and will be suspended by Team Astana. Armstrong protested and in an interview with Veloats News commented "It's not like I had Boonen putting the sugar on them, it was just straight Cheerios. It seems as though the Italians are taking lessons from the French on this one."


  1. Should I? Okay, first. Where are you ant1? Like the entry Wheel Dancer.

  2. second.

    It's not the cheerio itself but what may be hidden in the hole.


  3. Wes - Thanks, glad you liked it.

    Bluenoser - All this time I never knew Cheerios were designed as delivery devices.
