PCRM Billboards Warn About Cheese

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) is using billboards through Albany, NY to raise awareness about the link between obesity and cheese intake. PCRM wants the Albany city school district to cut cheese from its lunch menu, which is loaded with it. One in three students in New York is overweight or obese.

Cheese is high in saturated fat, cholesterol and animal protein, which are very unhealthy for humans. Obesity, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and some types of cancer have been linked to diets rich in animal products. Feeding children these kinds of diets is likely setting them up for an unhealthy life.
