Americans eat an awful lot of pizza, according to a February report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture on pizza consumption from 2007–2010.
The findings can be summarized thusly: On a given day, about 13 percent of Americans eat pizza. Especially teenage boys. And white people. And kids, at lunch. Pizza has a lot of calories. And sodium.
The report doesn’t offer any thoughts about whether this is a good thing. That may be because the U.S. government’s official position is that people should eat more pizza—and also less pizza.
