Eating More Cheese Can Help You Live Healthier and Longer, Science says


According to a study, published in the medical journal The Lancet, eating more cheese might help people live longer, after looking and studying about the eating habits and life expectancy of certain people.

Some people might worry that a pleasing mountain of cheese could possibly lead them to heart attack, but according to this study, there will be no more to worry about as cheesy-pro people can now fulfill their cheesy dreams without thinking of their health, after it found out that eating cheese could help people live longer.

The study gathered 130,000 participants in 21different countries at the age of 35 to 70, to lookk and observe their eating habits.

Researchers came to a conclusion that among the participants, those who eat more cheese live longer and keep their heart strong than those who do not.

They studied the cheese consumption of them and determined how did the food affected the body of the participants especially their cardiovascular health.

While the study did find that eating cheese has a slightly positive impact on heart health by reducing the possibility of stroke and heart attack, it could also make people happy.

According to Ian Givens, a professor of food chain nutrition at Reading University in the UK, the study has the big potential to change the dietary guidelines approach on dairy intake recommendations.

“It also adds weight to the evidence that saturated fats from dairy [probably apart from butter] are not associated with increased cardiovascular disease risk, unlike some other sources," Givens told Newsweek.

According to a 2015 study published in the medical journal Calcified Tissue International, besides keeping your heart pumping healthy, eating a few servings a day of your favorite dairy treats like cheese can also keep you safe from musculoskeletal diseases,

The study suggested that if you're lactose intolerant, you don't necessarily have to cut fro-yo out of your life forever.

"Lactose intolerant individuals may not need to completely eliminate dairy products from their diet, as both yogurt and hard cheese are well tolerated," the study authors wrote.

But, of course, it's best to consult your doctor about something like this so he/she will be able to guide you if ever you really are tolerant with it.

In addition, one study, published in the academic medical journal The Annals of Internal Medicine, looked at the ways in which nearly 4,000 adults were affected by eating dairy were found strongly associated with both lower cholesterol and lower insulin levels.
