How cheese affects the heart

People who eat cheese every day could be less likely to have a heart attack

A recent report revealed that only 40 grams are enough to reduce the heart disease risk if consumed every day. The aforementioned portion was 40 grams, roughly the size of a matchbox.

Earlier this year, a British-led study also found that nearly one million people saw no increased risk with regular cheese consumption.

Although cheese contains high levels of saturated fat - linked to bad heart health - the calcium in the food means less of that fat is absorbed by the body, it was discovered. In addition, a number of substances in the cheese to prevent clogged arteries.

Soochow University has now found that cheese raises levels of so-called "good" cholesterol while reducing levels of "bad" cholesterol.

Consuming cheese on regular basis may lower the risk of getting heart attack, as per study reveals. And on the last day of the observation, it was found that the participants were less vulnerable to heart attacks and strokes.

"It's unclear how long-term consumption affects the development of cardiovascular disease".

Even full-fat cheese, milk and yoghurt do not increase the danger, the review of 29 studies found.

And if not, congratulations, because not only do you have great taste in dairy products, but you could also be cutting your chances of suffering a heart attack by 14 percent.

Sophie Clarke, of the British Cheese Board, said, "Far from having a negative effect, a number of large studies have shown dairy products to have a protective effect on factors relating to heart health".

Despite the high kilojoule quantity, eating cheese on a daily basis is good for the heart.

New research suggests cheese is good for your heart.

Similarly, the research also didn't take into account people who have drastically altered their diets over time so it's probably likely that those who were eating the 40 grams of cheese were just healthier in general.
