Eating Cheese Every Day May Actually Be Good for You

Eating Cheese Every Day May Actually Be Good for You

I disagree. While I appreciate the researchers' enthusiasm for finding a way to justify eating cheese on health grounds, I feel certain that eating a little bit of cheese is worse than eating no cheese at all, heart disease prevention aside, because the longing one would feel for more cheese in the immediate aftermath would be almost unbearable.

They found moderate cheese eaters, who consumed about 40 grams a day, were 14 percent less likely to develop heart disease and had 10 percent lower risk of stroke.

A 40 gram square, about the size of matchbox, was the sweet spot for health benefits.

Researchers from China and the Netherlands sought to learn more about how long-term cheese consumption can affect a person's risk for heart disease.

The researchers' findings were "certainly different from what people might expect", says Dr. Allan Stewart, director of aortic surgery at Ichan School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Medical Center, who was not involved in the new analysis.

A new section now outlines a ZWJ mechanism which will let the vendor switch directions of any emoji. That being said we still need to wait until January when the final list will be announced.

The relationship, however, was U-shaped rather than linear-meaning that higher quantities of cheese were not necessarily better. Like other dairy products, it contains a high amount of saturated fat - which has been recently connected to high cholesterol, atherosclerosis, and heart disease.

Another thing to keep in mind is that the data regarding cheese consumption was self-reported, and people are notorious for over or under-estimating the amount of food they've eaten.

Many types of cheese have high levels of probiotics which could lower inflammation. New research supports eating cheese as part of a healthy diet too.

"There is some evidence that cheese - as a substitute for milk, for example - may actually have a protective effect on the heart. But on the upside, a bit of cheese on a cracker doesn't sound unreasonable", Stewart said. Precisely how much cheese does this study suggest might confer some dubious health benefits? Now, a new saturated fat has fallen under the scrutiny of researchers: cheese.
