Finally! Some good news!
40 grams of cheese a day could reduce your chances of developing heart disease, according to a new study.
A Chinese study found that eating about one-and-a-half ounces of cheese can slash a person’s heart disease risk by 14 percent.
This same portion size could also lower the risk of a stroke by 10 percent.
Researchers say the small amount of cheese raises levels of so-called 'good' cholesterol while reducing levels of 'bad' cholesterol.
Although cheese contains high levels of saturated fat, which is linked to bad heart health, the calcium in the food means that less of that fat is absorbed by the body - so don't go overboard, a little goes a long way!
