We Asked the NFL’s Aaron Rodgers to Give Up Cheese in 2011
It took five years. But Aaron Rodgers, who plays for the National Football League’s Green Bay Packers, finally got our message that Cheese Can Sack Your Health. In 2011, we posted this billboard near Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wis., where the Packers play.
This week Rodgers told ESPN that he has followed “more of a vegan diet” since his knee surgery in January. He told ESPN: “Through your eating, you can reduce inflammation because if you do research, you learn the different foods you eat can actually increase the inflammation in your body and especially in certain parts of your body.” You can find out more about the dangers of cheese and how to break your addiction here.
