Eating cheese every day may be good for you

Participants in the analysis who ate a little bit of cheese every day were less likely to suffer from a stroke or develop heart disease, compared with people who never or only rarely ate it.

15 studies with more than 200,000 were analyzed and researchers found those who ate roughly 40 grams of cheese a day lowered their risk for coronary heart disease by 14 percent and stroke by 10 percent. They say those who got the most benefit were eating an ounce-and-a-half a day of cheese a day, about the size of a matchbook. This basically means that higher quantities of cheese aren't necessarily better.

It's important to remember that cheese isn't some sort of miracle food.

Stewart was not involved in the study. It may very well be that the people who ate cheese and had lower risks of heart disease may have been doing something else to make sure they were healthy, such as exercising.

Cheese is typically considered more of an indulgence than a health food, but a new review of research suggests that it may not be as bad for you as once thought.

While cheese contains some nutrients that are beneficial to health - such as, zinc, and A and B-12 - it is also, which can increase levels and raise the risk of and.

"Cheese can be high in probiotics, which tend to put you in less of an inflammatory state", Dr. Allan Stewart told Time. While it may seem like a lot of the dairy product, it's an average of 36 grams per day, which is slightly less than the amount recommended by researchers.

The study also failed to look at various kinds of cheeses, which might have yielded different results as there are certain kinds that include more benefits or risks than the typical cheese.

The researchers' conclusions showed that there was an inverse relationship between cheese consumption and total risk of CVD, CHD, and stroke. "It's promising to find that something that actually tastes good-and pairs well with a nice glass of red wine-may offer some protection, as well".
