Did you know that cheese was one of the 'weapons' of the Romans?.

It was the Romans who invented the wheels of cheese , and was partly perhaps because of them who managed to win many battles and expand their empire. At least that's what counts Troy Johnson in one of the episodes of "Crave," a Food Network program that premieres Aug. 29.

As the cheese is spoiled quickly, were always a source of energy rich in protein and fat men in skirts, "said culinary writer, reports .

While recording the new program, Johnsontambién discovered another curious fact about this dairy product: the bacteria used to make cheese is the same Limburguer present in the human body guilty of body odor.
