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

There is good news for lactose lovers, researchers have found that a little bit of cheese every day might be good for you.

Dairy has always been a dicey subject in the health food world. They say those who got the most benefit were eating an ounce-and-a-half a day of cheese a day, about the size of a matchbook.

Her take: Consuming saturated fat from real, whole foods (like dairy products) is better - and even possibly beneficial - in comparison to highly processed sources, especially ones that also contain partially hydrogenated oils. Cheese also contains conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), an unsaturated fatty acid that may increase the amount of of HDL "good" cholesterol and decrease "bad" LDL levels. 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. The research relies mostly on self-reported data, which can be unreliable, and only shows a correlation - not a direct cause-and-effect.

15 studies with more than 200,000 were analyzed and researchers found those who ate roughly 40 grams of cheese a day lowered their risk for coronary heart disease by 14 percent and stroke by 10 percent.


No, one shouldn't go out and eat as much cheese as they can, even though cheese is addictive.

More importantly, the nutritional content of cheese still has its own pros and cons.

However, it is hard to conclude whether these associations had any influence on the study results.

It's important to understand that the relationship between higher cheese consumption and lower risk of heart disease and stroke is U-shaped rather than linear. The two primary exceptions are ayurveda, which embraces the milk by-product, and the of-the-moment keto diet, which relies on such a high-fat intake that cheese becomes practically a necessity.
