Eat Cheese Every Day to Reduce Heart Disease Risk

Cheese lovers, you just got a reason to load up on more cheese daily. A new study claims that eating a daily portion of cheese could reduce the risk of fatal heart attacks and stroke.

This comes just months after a previous study found that cheese could hold the keys to a longer life. The study was published in the European Journal of Nutrition.

All cheese is rich in vitamins, minerals and proteins which help protect against cardiovascular disease. Cheese also contains high levels of calcium, which means that although it is high in fat, less of that fat is absorbed by the body.

A number of studies have shown dairy products to have a protective effect on factors relating to heart health. Looking specifically at cheese, a number of studies show no association between consuming cheese and heart disease.

Participants eating around one-and-a-half ounces (40g) a day saw the greatest reduction in risk to their health.

The scientists said the research also showed cheese boosted levels of so-called "good" cholesterol while reducing levels of "bad" cholesterol.

Reacting to the latest study, Ian Givens, Professor of Food Chain Nutrition at Reading University, said calcium from dairy products such as cheese played a vital role in reducing fat in the body.

He said, "They do seem to be associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and - particularly with yoghurt - Type 2 diabetes, which is an area of research we are trying to develop because there are 700 new cases every day. The biggest element in cheese appears to be the close association between calcium and fat."
