Cheeseburger, cheese omelet, pizza, cream cheese, cheese fondue, grilled cheese, ham and cheese, chicken cordon bleu, mac and cheese, and lasagna...We take for granted the power of cheese. If there was no such thing as cheese, what would those foods be today, a burger would be just a plain lump of meat between bread, pizza would be dough and tomato sauce, cheese fondue wouldn't even exist, and the same with lasagna. Hello ladies and gentlemen, I am here today to discuss the power of cheese and the difference it has made in our everyday lives. If cheese were to get eliminated from all of our diets, we are not eliminating high amounts of fat and sodium from our diets but we are eliminating the godly taste of creamy delicious greatness.

First off lets look at the nutritional aspect of cheese. Cheese caries Vitamin A, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B12, zinc, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. If we look at the vitamins that other foods carry, lets say...vitamin A, that would consist of foods like spinach, potatoes, and liver. I'm sure we would prefer to eat a delicious pizza over liver. So by eating cheese it helps make a barrier to prevent bacteria, keeps your blood cells healthy, helps your immune system, and is a tasty substitute for other repulsing foods.

The presence of cheese has been around for years. Cheese has been found in Egyptian tombs over 4,000 years old. Even in Ancient Rome in 4000 BC, cheese was considered an important part of their diet. Legend is that nomadic tribes of Central Asia who carried milk in animal skin bags "discovered" cheese. They carried milk in saddlebags made from animal skins, and possibly made from the stomach, which contains rennin. The galloping motion of the horse, acting as churning, would separate the milk into curds. The result, curds and whey, provided a refreshing whey drink as well as curds. Before long, people learned that the curds could be aged over weeks or months, and then, pressed together to form large cakes of cheese.These nomadic tribes existed between 8500-6500 BC.

There are many different types of cheeses, and many different types of animals that you can milk for cheese. You can milk cows, goats, yaks, horses, and even camels and water Buffalo. So basically any animal that you can milk. The most common cheese types are cheddar, parmesan, mozzarella, and Camembert. Cheddar cheese comes from the British and is the most preferred around the world. Parmesan is a hard cheese that comes from the town of Parma, Italy. Mozzarella cheese also originated in Italy by milking Buffalo. Camembert is a soft cheese from France, first created in the 18th century in the village of Normandy. And Feta which is the most known Greek cheese.

In the Greek times, they believed that there was a cheese god named Aristaios. Personally that is a ridiculous idea. For one, he was also the god of bee-culture and cultivating. You cannot compare minor activities
