Eating Small Bits Of Cheese Daily Helps Lower Heart Disease Risks

For their study, Qin and colleagues conducted a meta-analysis of 15 observational studies that investigated how cheese consumption influenced the total risk of CVD, as well as the risks of (CHD) and stroke.

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. But cheese also does contain high levels of saturated fat, much like other dairy products.

The researchers' findings were "certainly different from what people might expect", says Dr. Allan Stewart, director of aortic surgery at Ichan School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Medical Center, who was not involved in the new analysis.

For people who ate lots of cheese on a daily basis, researchers found a 14 percent reduction in the chances of developing coronary heart disease as well as a 10 percent lower chance of having a stroke. Moderate cheese eaters may live healthier lifestyles or have higher incomes, leading to reduced risk of heart disease and stroke, researchers pointed out.

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.

The attention of specialists was attracted by the fact that the people of France, who usually consume fat-rich food, including cheeses, relatively rarely suffer from heart diseases. Those with the lowest risks of these illnesses were those who consumed around 40 grams a day of cheese - a quantity around the size of a book of matches.
