Eating This Amount of Cheese Is Good for Your Heart

Scientists from Soochow University in China concluded that daily consumption of a slice of cheese, not only will not hurt, but rather improve the condition of the heart and blood vessels.

As per the researchers, cheese do seem to be associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and particularly with yogurt- type-2 diabetes that is an area of research they have been trying to develop because there are 700 new cases every day.

In addition to reducing the chance of heart disease by 14 per cent, it could also help when it comes to strokes.

However, the researchers couldn't tell what impact long-term cheese consumption can have on health. In total, the results drew data from around 200,000 people worldwide. Despite all the saturated fats they contain, dairy products can have some real health benefits.

If you don't eat cheese every day, honestly, what do the majority of your meals consist of?

Even full-fat cheese, milk and yoghurt do not increase the danger, the review of 29 studies found.

"The number of participants in particular gives us a really clear global picture of the neutral association of dairy on heart disease risk, and some indications about the potentially beneficial effect of fermented dairy on heart health, although further studies are needed to confirm this".

Ian Givens, professor of food chain nutrition at Reading University, said: 'There's quite a widespread but mistaken belief among the public that dairy products in general can be bad for you, but that's a misconception.

Despite the high kilojoule quantity, eating cheese on a daily basis is good for the heart.

According to, Aussies consume about 13kg of cheese per person a year - an average of about 35.6g a day, which is just under the recommended amount.
