In another study carried out at the University College Dublin, the effects of cheese on cholesterol levels were analysed.
The researchers set out to examine the impact of dairy foods such as milk, cheese, yoghurt, cream and butter and how this affects both body fat and health.
According to the study, people who eat a lot of cheese do not have higher cholesterol levels than those who don’t.
Currently, health guidelines warn that consuming foods high in saturated fats like cheese increases a person’s risk of developing high blood cholesterol, a main risk factor in heart disease and strokes.
However, this would not be the case with a person’s risk of serious diseases and cholesterol is not increased by consuming cheese.
