Agriculture Department Pushing for Cheese While Warning Against It

My dad sent me this disturbing article from yesterday’s New York Times about the contradictions in the U.S. Agriculture Department, specifically around cheese. I highly recommend reading it. From the article:

When sales of Domino’s Pizza were lagging, a government agency stepped in with advice: more cheese. This is the same government that, for health reasons, is advising less cheese

The organization’s activities, revealed through interviews and records, provide a stark example of inherent conflicts in the Agriculture Department’s historical roles as both marketer of agriculture products and America’s nutrition police.”
