Last Wednesday I was listening to WBEZ on my way home and they covered a story on exactly what we had been discussing in class. This newscast covers the United States' increasingly complicated relationship with cheese, and how two governmental agencies are pushing two very different viewpoints to the American consumer.
Robert Siegel explains that cheese is good for you! (One side says) It can even help you lose weight!
While Melissa Block explains the other side claims that Americans eat far too much cheese, it's very bad for us!
Listen to the newscast, its great, even if it is just to hear the soothing creamy texture of Robert Siegel's airwave-y goodness.
(it's 4 1/2 minutes long)
