Choose Your Poison Wisely
What’s the healthiest cigarette?
The healthiest liquor?
Ridiculous questions, right? But right there on my Yahoo! homepage an article titled:
Seriously?! Cheese is little more than saturated fat, cholesterol, animal protein and salt. All are unhealthy and strongly linked to heart disease and cancer. But it gets better (worse.) The article goes on to call it a lean protein! At 70% fat, cheese is NOT lean, instead it is the biggest contributor of saturated fat in the American diet.
Now I’m a recovering cheese addict, so I have nothing agains the taste, but to make health claims about it is just plain wrong.
