Eating Cheese Does Not Raise Risk of Heart Attack or Stroke, Study Finds

If you’ve been looking for a reason to add cheese back into your diet — especially full-fat cheeses — then you may be relieved to know that studies now show that consuming cheese, milk or yogurt does not increase your risk of either heart attack or stroke. Even though full-fat versions passed this test, government health advisers are sticking to their old advice to eat only low-fat versions of these products, The Guardian reported.

How many studies is it going to take before the people who make policy on the government level finally break down and admit that condemning full-fat foods not only is wrong, but bad for your health? It’s processed vegetable oils and fake fats that are causing heart disease and contributing to devastating attacks to your health — NOT healthy, saturated fats.

Cheese has long been demonized for its saturated fat content, but research shows it has many benefits, including improved cardiovascular health and a lower risk for obesity and diabetes. Eating high-fat cheese can help improve your health by raising your high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, thought to be protective against metabolic diseases and heart disease.

Other types of full-fat dairy products, such as milk and yogurt, also have far greater health benefits than their low-fat counterparts. The truth is many studies have debunked the saturated fat myth. So go ahead, enjoy that full-fat cheese (in moderate quantities, of course). But make sure that it comes from free-ranging, grass fed cows, and preferably from their raw milk. It’s OK to eat real butter too. But stay far, far away from processed cheeses and low- or no-fat anything.
