Why We're Doing This Reason #5

Talk about mixed signals. The United States Department of Agriculture, who is trying to lead the charge against obesity is now also trying to get us to eat more saturated fat through it's new campaign to push more cheese on it. The USDA created an organization called Dairy Management, which has teamed up with Dominoe's to develop pizzas that use 40% more cheese. Then they devised and PAID for a $12 million marketing campaign to sell these cheesier pizzas.

In one hand they tell us to eat less fat and go for fat free or low fat dair products while with the other hand try to get us to eat more cheese.

Don't even get me started on who actually *owns* the USDA, because it's obviously NOT the People who it was originally designed to protect.

You can read more about this here.


  1. Have you seen this one? It made my day.

  2. I'm not a fan of the low fat edicts and am a complete cheesaholic, but this is just kooky. Where's the 12 million to sell more veggies?

  3. Anna, I have to say that the study is absurd. Cholesterol in food does not equal blood cholesterol.

  4. I added myself to follow your blog. You are more than welcome to visit mine and become a follower if you want to.

    God Bless You :-)


  5. 12 million for the to cut the cheese. Ah, yes. while we squander bucks on crap like this we are also planning on upping the retirement age to 69 (I'll be dead),cutting back services to the disabled and elderly. Don't get ME started.
