The politics of Cheese

I’m interested in Nutrition in the way that it affects the body and educating myself on how to eat the right things to promote well being, good health, and beautiful skin.  I don’t get too into the politics of Animal Products, but I thought this article, from the New York Times, on how the government is simultaneously warning us of obesity problems in the United States and promoting the sale of cheese. They did and interesting marketing plan with Domino’s Pizza where they added 40% more cheese to boost sales. It worked. Now Domino’s is back in the game, but what about the consumers who, by eating this pizza and all this cheese, are getting more and more obese? This Marketing campaign was funded $12 million by an organization called Dairy Management.  What is Dairy Management?  Its a marketing creation by the United States Department of Agriculture.

So, consider this article a little ” food for thought”     http://www.nytimes.com/2010/11/07/us/07fat.html?_r=2&emc=eta1
