A team of global researchers lead by Reading University revealed in April that eating dairy does not raise the risk of suffering a heart attack or stroke.

In a report on their findings, researchers said that cheese is high in fat but it also contains potentially beneficial nutrients.

While plenty of research has suggested that the tasty dairy product may not be great for us, the new findings will be music to the ears of cheese lovers.

Researchers are keen to understand the so-called "French paradox", a perplexing phenomenon in which French people, who tend to have diets rich in cholesterol and saturated fat, somehow have low rates of heart disease. Additionally, it also contains an acid that helps prevent clogging of the arteries. In total, the results drew data from around 200,000 people worldwide.

While it may be easier to reach for a cheese slice or to melt some grated cheese, Joel Feren from the Dietitian's Association of Australia explained to Body and Soul that there are healthier options.

Despite the high kilojoule quantity, eating cheese on a daily basis is good for the heart.
