A New Study Shows Cheese Might Be Good For Your Heart

Researchers for this paper analyzed 15 studies from the US and Europe, which tracked the diets and health outcomes of more than 200,000 people. It tends to have a bad rep, given its saturated fat content, but the study says there's actually "limited evidence" of a negative effect on one's health from eating high-fat dairy. (But the findings were) certainly different from what people might expect. 40 grams of cheese is a roughly the size of a matchbox and slightly more than an ounce serving.

For people who ate lots of cheese on a daily basis, researchers found a 14 percent reduction in the chances of developing coronary heart disease as well as a 10 percent lower chance of having a stroke.

Another thing to keep in mind is that the data regarding cheese consumption was self-reported, and people are notorious for over or under-estimating the amount of food they've eaten. In 2015, the population of the United States consumed the equivalent of of cheese per person, with Cheddar and mozzarella being the most popular choices.

"This is not the same as eating a big slice of cheesy pizza every day", says Stewart.

Stewart was not involved in the study.

The saturated fat debate has always been raging in the health food world.

Flynn's former company, for documents that the House committee had requested in March but had not yet been provided. The witness could not read the text, but he saw that the time stamp was 12:11 p.m., according Cummings's letter.

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.

Many types of cheese have high levels of probiotics which could lower inflammation.

Cheese contains vitamins A, K and D along with calcium, zinc, magnesium and protein.

In fact, researchers cited a recent randomized controlled trial of 153 participants that ate high-fat cheese regularly for eight weeks did not increase their total cholesterol or LDL-C levels, but reduced triglycerides among subjects. "No one's saying you should definitely go out and eat 40 grams of cheese a day. But on the upside, a bit of cheese on a cracker doesn't sound unreasonable", Stewart said.

Cheese, glorious cheese. When Christmas comes around, we love the pungent stuff even more than usual.
