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

Sound.

If you don't eat cheese every day, honestly, what do the majority of your meals consist of?

Meat? Bread? Vegetables?!

If so, you are missing out, my friend.

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.

New research conducted by Chinese University, Soochow, has shown that people who consume 40 grams of cheese per day have less chance of developing certain heart diseases.

Researchers analysed data from a range of studies conducted in Europe and America that tracked the diets and health outcomes of over 200,000 people.

It showed that those who ate 40 grams of cheese per day had less heart attacks, and also 10 percent fewer strokes.

This is apparently due to the fact that although cheese contains a lot of fat, it also contains calcium which stops some of these fats from being absorbed into the body.

However, it's not all good news because 40 grams of cheese is actually not that much.

Here's a photo of how much cheese we're talking.

See? Pretty small.

Definitely more than we'd end up eating a day anyway.

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.

Still though, it's a good excuse to stock up on a bit of Charleville.
