Cheese Is Good For You Again, Studies Show

Eating Cheese Every Day May Actually Be Good for You

Eating Cheese Every Day May Actually Be Good for You

A recent study showed people who eat small amounts of cheese every day are less likely to develop heart disease than those who don't eat it at all. But the benefits outweigh the bad when it comes to cheese.

Cheese, like other dairy products, contains high levels of saturated fat-which has been linked to high cholesterol, atherosclerosis and an increased risk of heart disease.

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

However, the relationship between consuming cheese and having lower chances of heart disease was U-shaped instead of linear, the researchers discovered, which means that higher consumption of cheese doesn't mean even lower risk of developing heart disease.

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. In fact, the participants who had the lowest risk were those who every day ate cheese, on average, that's only the size of a matchbook.

Generally, cheese has always been the scourge of every health-conscious person who wants to make sure they have a balanced diet while still loving themselves enough to partake in the simple joy of one of Earth's greatest pleasures. "[But the findings were] certainly different from what people might expect".

But it's also possible that cheese has beneficial qualities that offset the negative impact of its high saturated fat content, says Stewart.

"Cheese can be high in probiotics, which tend to put you in less of an inflammatory state", Stewart told Time. Now, cheese-lovers can sleep well knowing that their midnight snack or post-night-out cheese fry indulgence is actually good for them. "No one's saying you should definitely go out and eat 40 grams of cheese a day".
