Western Kentucky U.
"To prevent 'the Big C' you've got
to eat 'the Big B,' " says the slogan of
the study on bran cereal marketing
being conducted by two Western
Kentucky U. faculty members.
Since 1984, when Kellogg's intro-
duced All-Bran cereal and
announced that increasing fiber in
the diet may reduce the risk of 'the
Big C,' cancer, there has been a "mul-
ti-million-dollar surge" in the bran
cereal market, according to Dr. Carl
Kell, a communications professor
and his graduate assistant Stephen
Biggers, who are conducting the
study.
Kell said more than 30 bran cere-
als have hit the market since 1984.
"The fitness boom brought great
attention into what we hear," Kell
said. "So the major players in the
market - General Foods, Post, Kel-
logg's, Ralston-Purina, Nabisco -
started pouring dollars into the de-
velopment of bran cereals."
The new products are being aimed
at a younger audience as a preven-
tive measure against cancer, parti-
cularly colon cancer, Biggers said.
Before the recent changes in the
market, Biggers said, bran cereal
was aimed at people 50 and older to
stop 'the little C' - constipation.
Kell said he decided to do the study
when he noticed the sudden increase
in bran cereal advertisements and
the new techniques being used in
them.

"Every time Iwalkedin the store, I
was astounded by the amount of new
bran cereal products, almost over-
night," Kell said. "What really
brought my attention to it was that
the TV commercials were focusingon
a younger market and saying that
eating bran cereal is a good thing,
that preparing for health in older
years begins as young as possible."
Kell said the majority of cereal
commercials are shown during the
evening news to reach the target au-
dience of 20- to 40-year-olds.
"We're looking at the rhetorical
messages put out by the makers of
bran cereal," Biggers said. "We want
to know how they are convincing peo-
ple they should put fiberin their diet,
and that bran, oat and wheat bran is
that fiber."
Western Kentucky student Sarah
Berry said the taste will turn her off
the bran no matter what the pitch.
"I don't like the way it tastes," she
said. "I'll probably regret it later, but
I just don't eat it. I'm a Cap'n Crunch
person."
Biggers and Kell have been work-
ing on the study, called "RoughingIt:
The Rhetoric of Bran Cereal In
American Popular Culture," for two
months.
The main result of the bran boom,
according to Kell, is "the legitimiza-
tion of bran cereal."
"The smart-thinking generation is
buying this product," Kell said. "The
message is when you eat the regular
stuff - bacon, eggs, biscuits and
gravy - you're eating dumb stuff.
Bran is smart."
