Eating cheese every day may be good for you

The majority of these studies included only people without heart disease and tracked participants for ten years or more.

A new study indicates that a little bit of cheese is good for you. With the average American consuming 42.5 grams of food each day, you may find yourself eating less cheese if you want the maximum benefits.

Researchers from China and the Netherlands analyzed data gathered from 15 previous studies where numerous participants were tracked for at least 10 years.

The researchers believe that cheese's calcium stops fat being absorbed by the body while raising levels of good cholesterol. (But the findings were) certainly different from what people might expect.

Cheese, glorious cheese. When Christmas comes around, we love the pungent stuff even more than usual.

Dutch and Chinese scientists examined dietary data from more than 200,000 people and came up with a surprising result. Moderate cheese eaters may live healthier lifestyles or have higher incomes, leading to reduced risk of heart disease and stroke, researchers pointed out. Researchers from China and the Netherlands found that people who ate small amounts of cheese daily were less likely to have strokes or develop heart disease than people who abstained or ate cheese rarely.

Stewart points out that the study was only able to find an association between cheese consumption and decreased risk of heart disease, rather than a cause-and-effect relationship.

Just eat it in moderation because of the saturated fats and sodium levels. "There is some evidence that cheese - as a substitute for milk, for example - may actually have a protective effect on the heart". "The key takeaway from this study is an important one: Cheese, as a part of a veggie-heavy, plant-based diet can be as beneficial as it is delicious", she says."All foods can fit as a part of a balanced meal plan".

The study did not look at different types of cheeses, and Stewart says more research is needed to know whether certain varieties hold more health benefits (or risks) than others.

"We're always are searching for ways to minimize heart disease and reduce atherosclerosis", said Allan Stewart, director of aortic surgery at Ichan School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Medical Center.
