Experts, however, warn that this is not linear - in short, the study does not mean that people should start consuming blocks of cheese to prevent heart disease. Cheese also has an unsaturated fatty acid called conjugated linoleic acid which may affect cholesterol by lowering your bad LDL levels and raising the good HDL levels. Moderate cheese eaters may live healthier lifestyles or have higher incomes, leading to reduced risk of heart disease and stroke, researchers pointed out. Like other dairy products, it contains a high amount of saturated fat - which has been recently connected to high cholesterol, atherosclerosis, and heart disease.
The study, published in the European Journal of Nutrition this month, says people who ate around 40 grams of cheese per day - a serving about the size of a matchbox - saw the greatest reduction in risk of cardiovascular disease.
The 15 studies, which included 200,000 participants, were selected for analysis based on meeting the following criteria: the study design was prospective; the exposure of interest was cheese consumption; the outcome of interest was fatal/nonfatal CVD, CHD, or stroke; and RRs (relative risk) with corresponding 95% Cis (confidence interval) were reported or could be estimated.
The findings after this research review were definitely different than expected.
"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.

El equipo que más goles anotó fue el Paris Saint-Germain con 25, seguido del Liverpool con 23 y el Real Madrid con 17. Tampoco aquellos que hayan compartido grupo en la fase que culminó este miércoles .
Stewart points out that the study was only able to find an association between cheese consumption and decreased risk of heart disease, rather than a cause-and-effect relationship. Recent research shows, however, that saturated fat may be more benign than we think.
Many types of cheese have high levels of probiotics which could lower inflammation.
"There is some evidence that cheese-as a substitute for milk, for example-may actually have a protective effect on the heart", says Stewart.
Adults should get about 1,000 mg of calcium a day and one ounce of cheese gives you roughly 20 percent. "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".
