The Truth About Cheese

Want to guess what the biggest artery-clogging culprit in the American diet is? Here’s a hint: It’s not red meat or even butter. Full-fat cheese is the largest source of saturated fat in the U.S. diet.
While most of us have given up whole milk and cut way back on beef, the average American still eats 30 pounds of cheese a year. Since one ounce of the stuff can contain as much saturated fat as a glass of whole milk, you can see how the fat adds up.
