A new study indicates that a little bit of cheese is good for you.
Published by the European Journal of Nutrition, the report claims that a small consumption of cheese daily can actually lessen a person's chance of coronary heart disease by 14%, or even reduce the chances of having a stroke by 10%.
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.
"This is not the same as eating a big slice of cheesy pizza every day", Dr. Allen Stewart of Mount Sinai Medical Center's Ichan School of Medicine clarified. Recent research shows, however, that saturated fat may be more benign than we think.
Until additional studies confirm such findings, it is important to remember that cheese is high in saturated fats, which can be harmful to heart health in high amounts.

Willie Taggart leaving OR to be next Florida St
The Bradenton, Fla., native led South Florida to a 10-2 record and top-25 finish in 2016 before accepting the OR job. From there, the Ducks lost four of their next five after an injury to starting quarterback Justin Herbert .
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 relationship, however, was U-shaped rather than linear-meaning that higher quantities of cheese were not necessarily better. But the benefits outweigh the bad when it comes to cheese.
Adults should get about 1,000 mg of calcium a day and one ounce of cheese gives you roughly 20 percent.
The study did not look at different types of cheeses, and Stewart says more research is needed to know whether certain varieties hold more health benefits (or risks) than others. "It's promising to find that something that actually tastes good-and pairs well with a nice glass of red wine-may offer some protection, as well".
