Eating Cheese Every Day Might Actually Be Good for You

Eating Cheese Every Day Might Actually Be Good for You

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. Those who ate small amounts of cheese daily showed a 14 per cent less chance of developing heart disease, while stroke risk was slashed by 10 per cent.

These new findings come from an analysis of 15 observational studies that looked at the effects of cheese intake on the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Authors of the report state that basically, the high calcium levels (good) in cheese act to block some of the saturated fats (bad) in the delicious dairy product, balancing out the nutritional value ratio.

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. This basically means that higher quantities of cheese aren't necessarily better.

However in the meeting it was discussed that teams could retain not more than than three Indian and two foreign players. It was also made a decision to increase the total purse of each franchise from Rs 66 crore to Rs 80 crore.

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. But the benefits outweigh the bad when it comes to cheese. With the average American consuming 42.5 grams of food each day, you may find yourself eating less cheese if you want the maximum benefits.

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.

"We're always are searching for ways to minimize heart disease and reduce atherosclerosis", he says.
