I have been reading a lot of posts on social media these days. It is one way I keep on top of the struggles people have all over the country. I frequently see this issue: The person writing the post has been eating healthy and maybe working out.

Americans love cheese! I know, this is not a shock, but in fact, Americans eat more than 33 pounds of cheese per person per year which is 3 times more than they did in 1970. It is not a coincidence that people are more obese than ever. Cheese is loaded with saturated fat, sodium, and cholesterol.
