Don't Get Cheesed about Cheese

Posted Jan 20 2011 9:14am

Sorry for the cheesy title. And sorry again for the bad pun! READ THE WHOLE ARTICLE — Many of you are missing the point: Cheese shouldn’t be demonized.

Recently, I got a reader question about this New York Times article . The gist of the article: Americans are eating more cheese. Cheese has saturated fat. Saturated fat = very bad, heart disease, etc. Thus, Americans should eat less cheese. Michelle Obama agrees.

The reader was concerned because she loves cheese and doesn’t want to have to stop eating it. And she shouldn’t — and neither should you! With some exceptions, cheese is a great source of (yes, saturated) fat and protein. Let me break it down for you.
