Health Desk—4 december 2017: Consuming 40 gm cheese every day may reduce the risk of heart stroke and heart attacks, according to a new study.
This study was published in the European Journal of Nutrition and conducted by the researchers at Soochow University in China. They said cheese is rich in vitamins, minerals, and proteins which help protect against cardiovascular disease. Researchers found that cheese increased levels of “good” cholesterol while reducing levels of “bad” cholesterol.
‘Express.co.uk’ reported cheese also contains an acid that can help avert clogging of the arteries,
Ian Givens, Professor of Food Chain Nutrition at Reading University told the Express, “There has been a lot of publicity over the last five to 10 years about how saturated fats increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and a belief has grown up that they must increase the risk, but they don’t.”
