It’s the Food!

It’s the Food! 71% of Americans are either overweight or obese. According to Dr. Yami Cazorla-Lancaster (USDA data), in 2018, Americans consumed 646 pounds of total dairy per person, which is 107 more pounds per person compared to 1975. In 2018, the average American also consumed 40 pounds of cheese, as well as 13 pounds of yogurt, 6 pounds of butter and 18 pounds of ice cream. Yikes.

Let’s not forget that the American government spends $38 billion each year to subsidize meat and dairy, but only 0.04% of that ($17 million) to subsidize fruits and vegetables. Animal food producers also impose $414 billion in hidden costs on America in the form of healthcare, subsidies, and environmental damage.
