I just thought I would throw this little piece of information out there. I think its pretty interesting.
I was watching Bill Maher stand up a little while ago, and he said in 1950, Americans ate about 7 pounds of cheese per year, and now Americans eat
around 30 pounds of cheese per year. I decided to look that up, and, well....its pretty true! Heres the article off of Agriculture Factbook 2001-2002.
Average annual consumption of cheese (excluding full-skim American and cottage, pot, and baker’s cheeses) increased 287 percent between the
1950s and 2000, from 7.7 pounds per person to 29.8 pounds. Lifestyles that emphasize convenience foods were probably major forces behind the higher
That site has information on other foods, but Ill keep this post about cheese.
I love cheese, even though eating a ton of it really isnt that good for the body. I just thought this would be some interesting stuff to put out
there......and considering how fat America is these days......
