Most legal cheese should be legal. It's only illegal cheese you should worry about, the hombre cheese brought in by murderers and rapists. I'll tell you, there's a tremendous amount of illegal cheese crossing the border every day, and it has to stop. We need to build a wall to keep out this flood of illegal cheese.
Some legal cheese should be made illegal, like Limburger. It smells disgusting.
Cheese is not only delicious, but very healthy as well, being a dairy product they are high in calcium. There is a cheese for everyone, as there are hundreds of different types and flavors. And what about other dairy products as well? Cheese has earned its place in the food pyramid and in our society.
Smoking, drinking, and even weed is starting to become legal and you want to ban weed? This goes to show where this country is heading, especially when it is being taken over by libtards. I think its time we start using common sense before we get into stuff that wont make a difference in anything.
Cheese is a food based on milk. Cheese is produced in wide-ranging flavors, textures, and forms.
Cheese consists of proteins and fat from milk, usually the milk of cows, buffalo, goats, or sheep. It is produced by coagulation of the milk protein casein. Typically, the milk is acidified and addition of the enzyme rennet causes coagulation. The solids are separated and pressed into final form. Some cheeses have molds on the rind or throughout. Most cheeses melt at cooking temperature.
Hundreds of types of cheese from various countries are produced. Their styles, textures and flavors depend on the origin of the milk (including the animal's diet), whether they have been pasteurized, the butterfat content, the bacteria and mold, the processing, and aging. Herbs, spices, or wood smoke may be used as flavoring agents. The yellow to red color of many cheeses, such as Red Leicester, is normally formed from adding annatto.
For a few cheeses, the milk is curdled by adding acids such as vinegar or lemon juice. Most cheeses are acidified to a lesser degree by bacteria, which turn milk sugars into lactic acid, then the addition of rennet completes the curdling. Vegetarian alternatives to rennet are available; most are produced by fermentation of the fungus Mucor miehei, but others have been extracted from various species of the Cynara thistle family.
Cheese is valued for its portability, long life, and high content of fat, protein, calcium, and phosphorus. Cheese is more compact and has a longer shelf life than milk, although how long a cheese will keep may depend on the type of cheese; labels on packets of cheese often claim that a cheese should be consumed within three to five days of opening. Generally speaking, hard cheeses last longer than soft cheeses, such as Brie or goat's milk cheese. Cheesemakers near a dairy region may benefit from fresher, lower-priced milk, and lower shipping costs. The long storage life of some cheese, especially if it is encased in a protective rind, allows selling when markets are favorable. Additional ingredients may be added to some cheeses, such as black peppers, garlic, chives or cranberries.
A specialist seller of cheese is sometimes known as a cheesemonger. To become an expert in this field, like wine or cooking, requires some formal education and years of tasting and hands-on experience. This position is typically responsible for all aspects of the cheese inventory; selecting the cheese menu, purchasing, receiving, storage, and ripening.
For all of you that believe milk (or dairy) is good for you, try to find a study on milk that concluded that milk is good for you. The only studies that even suggested that milk is good was paid for by the Dairy Council themselves!
Are you wondering who made your good old food pyramid? You know the one that suggests 3 glasses of milk with a huge serving of meat? You'll never believe this: The meat and dairy industries (that want to sell their product) invented that food triangle! No wonder they require you to have so much!
On the truthful studies (that weren't paid for by the dairy foundations) found that milk actually weakens the bones and give the consumer an increased chance to get Osteoporoses (a bone weakening disease).
Your body is always trying to maintain homeostasis, meaning it always tries to keep your body balanced and in the best condition. One of the things it tries to keep balanced is the Ph levels (acidity and alkalinity in our bodies). The body draws resources from our body to maintain the Ph levels. We can get a lot of acidity and alkalinity from the foods we eat. Our body naturally generates enough acidity without eating anything at all, so our job (to make our body have to take the least amount of resources) is to eat the foods that are the least acidic. Milk is extremely acidic, so drinking it makes your acidity (that we already have more than enough of) go even higher. One of the main sources of alkalinity in your body is from bone marrow. Your body drains your bones of your bone marrow (including calcium) in order to even out the Ph levels, therefor causing your bones to become weaker. So even after you take all of that calcium away from your bones, you might expect to get the more calcium back from the milk. Nope! Milk is also very hard to digest, so it's hard for your body to get any of the nutrients out of the milk. Not to mention that it's completely unnatural for humans to drink milk (we are the only mammal to drink another mammals' milk), but it also has high cholesterol, which isn't good either. And with all of the Genetic Modification of foods these days (GMO), it just keeps getting worse.
I hope I was able to change your mind about milk being good (it's not)!
Humans are some of the only creatures that drink milk and eat dairy products after infancy. In fact, people that are lactose intolerant are the NORMAL ones, we're not supposed to have built up this need for lactose. And cheese just makes me sad, it tastes so good, and yet I can't eat it because if I do eat it I suffer from SEVERE STOMACH CRAMPS.
