Eating Cheese Every Day May Actually Be Good for You

In fact, people in the analysis who ate a little bit of cheese every day were less likely to develop heart disease or have a stroke, compared to those who rarely or never ate cheese.

Just eat it in moderation because of the saturated fats and sodium levels. The researchers also found that the probiotics in cheese may contribute to its ability to raise levels of "good" cholesterol while also lowering levels of "bad" cholesterol.

Experts, however, warn that this is not linear - in short, the study does not mean that people should start consuming blocks of cheese to prevent heart disease. In 2015, the population of the United States consumed the equivalent of of cheese per person, with Cheddar and mozzarella being the most popular choices.

Researchers for this paper analyzed 15 studies from the US and Europe, which tracked the diets and health outcomes of more than 200,000 people.

The findings after this research review were definitely different than expected. This means that while the researchers had no proof that the cheese consumption caused the lower levels of heart disease, those who ate cheese regularly were less likely to be the same people who had heart disease.

Barcelona midfielder Rakitic: Messi benched? He's still happy
Although coach Jorge Sampaoli selected him in his first game in charge in June, he has left him out of all seven matches since. Meanwhile, Rakitic hopes Messi's countryman and Argentina team-mate Javier Mascherano , 33, stays at the Nou Camp.

Researchers suggest that eating a small amount of cheese every day may benefit heart health.

The research published in the European Journal of Nutrition linked chowing down on about 40 grams of cheese daily (about the size of a matchbook) with the lowest chances of heart disease and stroke.

As noted in the study, cheese is also a good source of vitamins, minerals, and protein, which also may be "cardiovascular protective properties". "The key takeaway from this study is an important one: Cheese, as a part of a veggie-heavy, plant-based diet can be as beneficial as it is delicious", she says."All foods can fit as a part of a balanced meal plan". "But on the upside, a bit of cheese on a cracker doesn't sound unreasonable", Stewart said. It could be that people who eat cheese on a daily basis are healthier overall, or have more disposable income and higher socioeconomic statuses.

The study did not look at different types of cheeses, and Stewart says more research is needed to know whether certain varieties hold more health benefits (or risks) than others.
