A new research has warned that eating a slice of cheese every day could increase the risk of bladder cancer.

Researchers from Belgium and Holland conducted a test which analyzed the eating habits of over 200 bladder cancer victims and compared them to 386 non-cancer volunteers.

They found that that risk of bladder cancer increases substantially if a person ate at least 53g of cheese every day.

"We found a potentially protective effect from a high intake of olive oil and a suggestive increased risk from high cheese consumption", the researchers said though they pointed out that a more extensive study should be conducted to arrive at an accurate assumption.

The details are published in the European Journal of Cancer

Yes, more studies should be done. What's in the cheese that increases the risk for bladder cancer?
