Cheese Tied to Lower Heart Disease Risk

People who eat cheese every day could be less likely to have a heart attack

Eating cheese may reduce the risk of stroke and heart disease, research finds

A recent report revealed that only 40 grams are enough to reduce the heart disease risk if consumed every day.

Following an analysis of 15 existing studies on the health effects of eating cheese - which took into consideration the diet and health outcomes of more than 200,000 people - researchers found that on average, people who ate one portion of cheese per day were 14 percent less likely to develop coronary heart disease and 10 percent less likely to have a stroke.

CHEESE lovers rejoice - eating a portion of the good stuff could reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes, a study shows. All cheese is rich in vitamins, minerals and proteins that help against cardiovascular disease. Additionally, it also contains an acid that helps prevent clogging of the arteries.

The team in Bath and Nottingham, England, found that fat in obese people responds less to insulin than in lean people and the decrease related to the person's total amount of body fat.

The team's findings did not go as far as the Chinese study by saying it boosts heart health but said dairy only has a "neutral" impact.

The cat's owner Perla and her mum told NBC4 they refuse to watch the video because it's too upsetting. Investigators say they located the animal and its owner but no names were immediately released.

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.

The researchers also claimed that calcium from dairy products such as cheese played a vital role in reducing fat in the body.

If you don't eat cheese every day, honestly, what do the majority of your meals consist of? Are you a cheese fan and do you think it could actually be better for your health?

This is apparently due to the fact that although cheese contains a lot of fat, it also contains calcium which stops some of these fats from being absorbed into the body.

Dr Givens has said public health warnings have seen people shun full-fat versions of cheese, milk or yoghurt, in the mistaken belief that they could harm their health.
