The average American consumes over 34 pounds of cheese a year, though some shy away from eating the dairy product due to its high-fat content which has been known to contribute to higher cholesterol levels and the risk of heart disease. By conducting laboratory investigations and experiments found out that daily consumption of 40 grams of the product reduces by 14% the risk of cardiovascular diseases and stroke by 10%.

Heather Zinn, The Cheese Lady Grand Rapids stopped by My West Michigan to share cheeses that you may want to consider.

Researchers from Soochow University in China studied 15 experiments from Europe and the United States which tracked the diet and health outcomes of over 200,000 people.

The findings after this research review were definitely different than expected. More isn't necessarily better, though.

This is not the same as eating a big slice of cheesy pizza every day.

A recent study of over 200,00 people showed that those who ate a small amount of cheese daily had a lower risk of contracting heart disease, compared to those who rarely or never ate the stuff, New York Daily News reports.

The researchers believe that cheese's calcium stops fat being absorbed by the body while raising levels of good cholesterol. But the benefits outweigh the bad when it comes to cheese.

As noted in the study, cheese is also a good source of vitamins, minerals, and protein, which also may be "cardiovascular protective properties". Those with the lowest risks of these illnesses were those who consumed around 40 grams a day of cheese - a quantity around the size of a book of matches. "But on the upside, a bit of cheese on a cracker doesn't sound unreasonable", Stewart said. Researchers didn't specify whether one type of cheese was better than the rest. "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".
