A New Study Shows Cheese Might Be Good For Your Heart

The potential benefits are limited to a single serving of cheese per day which researchers identify as 50

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

Earlier this year, a British-led study also found that almost one million people saw no increased risk with regular cheese consumption.

Although many people look at cheese as a sort of "cheat food" due to its high fat content, a new research review suggests that it might not actually be that bad for you.

The findings after this research review were definitely different than expected.

Researchers from Norway and China who examined data from 15 studies said people who eat a little bit of cheese each day have a lower risk of developing heart disease and a lower chance of having a stroke.

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.

Raiders get reprieve, Chiefs suspend CB Marcus Peters Week 14
Peters' suspension comes ahead of the team's game against the Oakland Raiders Sunday, Dec. 10 at Arrowhead Stadium. Peters then came back onto the field not wearing any socks. "I always talk to the person first", Reid said Monday.

The relationship, however, was U-shaped rather than linear-meaning that higher quantities of cheese were not necessarily better.

The scientists report that these effects were strongest among participants who consumed around 40 grams, or 1.41 ounces, of cheese every day.

The link between cheese and lowered heart disease risks might be because people who eat cheese every day are already healthier, or have enough income to afford the habit, the researchers point out.

While low-fat dairy products are considered more favorable than high-fat dairy products by federal nutrition guidelines, the meta-analysis found limited evidence that high-fat dairy could increase the risk of CVD, CHD, or stroke compared to low-fat dairy. "Cheese can be high in probiotics, which tend to put you in less of an inflammatory state", he says.

Stewart was not involved in the study. One portion is 40 grams (1.4 oz), which represents a matchbox-sized chunk, two slim slices or a quarter cup of crumbled cheese, according to The Independent. Now, cheese-lovers can sleep well knowing that their midnight snack or post-night-out cheese fry indulgence is actually good for them.

"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.
