I’m not eating that

Make: Online asks: Do you eat the moldy stuff? I don’t, but according to the USDA, some foods can be eaten even after they’ve started to mold. And some cheese has mold on purpose:

Blue veined cheese such as Roquefort, blue, Gorgonzola, and Stilton are created by the introduction of P. roqueforti or Penicillium roqueforti spores. Cheeses such as Brie and Camembert have white surface molds.

So not only are cheese-eaters intentionally eating bad milk, some are also eating mold. I really don’t get it.
