Eating Cheese Every Day May Actually Be Good for You

Eating Cheese Every Day May Actually Be Good for You

The 15 studies, which included 200,000 participants, were selected for analysis based on meeting the following criteria: the study design was prospective; the exposure of interest was cheese consumption; the outcome of interest was fatal/nonfatal CVD, CHD, or stroke; and RRs (relative risk) with corresponding 95% Cis (confidence interval) were reported or could be estimated. Cheese also has an unsaturated fatty acid called conjugated linoleic acid which may affect cholesterol by lowering your bad LDL levels and raising the good HDL levels. People with the greatest health benefits from cheese ate around 40 grams per day, which is the size of a matchbook.

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%. Either way, I've yet to find a weirdo who doesn't like cheese, whether they eat it or not.

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

Just eat it in moderation because of the saturated fats and sodium levels. Still, the fact that cheese benefits exist that may outweigh the negatives of saturated fat is encouraging. While it may seem like a lot of the dairy product, it's an average of 36 grams per day, which is slightly less than the amount recommended by researchers. "But on the upside, a bit of cheese on a cracker doesn't sound unreasonable", Stewart said.

New findings may enhance your enjoyment of apr├Ęs-ski raclettes or holiday cheese boards.
