Eating cheese every day may actually be good for you

Eating cheese every day may actually be good for you

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.

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

New research has found eating a little bit of cheese might help when it comes to the number one leading cause of death - heart disease, as well as the fifth leading cause of death, which is a stroke.

The study, published in the European Journal of Nutrition this month, says people who ate around 40 grams of cheese per day - a serving about the size of a matchbox - saw the greatest reduction in risk of cardiovascular disease.

Overconsumption, however, can trigger high cholesterol and increase risk of heart disease due to high levels of saturated fat.

China says Indian drone invaded its airspace, crashed
The first "seemingly abrupt change" occurred on August 28 when China and India suddenly ended their stand-off, he said. China on Thursday claimed that an Indian drone violated country's airspace and crashed, reported global media.

Dutch and Chinese scientists examined dietary data from more than 200,000 people and came up with a surprising result.

The new study, however, suggests that this popular dairy product could have the opposite effect on cardiovascular health.

They concluded that those who regularly ate cheese cut their chances of having a stroke by 10% and chances of developing certain coronary heart diseases by 14%. It could be that people who eat cheese on a daily basis are healthier overall, or have more disposable income and higher socioeconomic statuses.

So why exactly is the dairy product suddenly good for you? Researchers didn't specify whether one type of cheese was better than the rest.

What is more, both studies have links to the dairy industry; the earlier study received funding from the Global Dairy Platform, Dairy Research Institute, and Dairy Australia, while the latest study was conducted with the help researchers from the Yili Group, a dairy company based in China. That means there could be other reasons why cheese lovers have lower risks for stroke and heart disease. The two primary exceptions are ayurveda, which embraces the milk by-product, and the of-the-moment keto diet, which relies on such a high-fat intake that cheese becomes practically a necessity.
