Cheese Actually Reduces Risk of Cardiovascular Disease and Provides a Lot of Health Benefits

Post by Guest on Tue Sep 11, 2018 6:32 pm

We at GNN are all big cheese fans — the founder’s ancestors were Swiss, she grew up in Wisconsin, and one of our writers (that would be me) is a cheesemonger – so naturally, we were thrilled when this new study found that cardiovascular health was positively affected by choosing cheese over other full-fat dairy sources.

The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition has published multiple studies on the relationship between cardiovascular health, fat content in the blood, and the consumption of saturated fats that are found in cheese. The majority of American dietary guidelines suggest keeping the intake of saturated fats to a minimum, as they are thought to increase cholesterol levels and risk of cardiovascular disease.

But since 2017, new findings are showing that one must look at the whole food item, rather than individual nutrients, in order to determine if it is unhealthy. A report published last May in the same journal details the “Food Matrix Effect”: a phenomenon involving the differences between the effects of whole foods and single-nutrients.

The dairy food matrix in particular seems to show quite the opposite of what fatty food guidelines might suggest. Cheese, for instance, has been shown in the past and present to significantly reduce LDL and HDL cholesterol levels in comparison to butter. High-fat yogurt was found to reduce risk of type-2 diabetes by a whopping 12%, with other high-fat products such as milk, cream, and cheese coming close behind. The speculation is that within the creamy goodness of cheese, nutrient molecules are locked within complex structures called matrices which your body requires time to dismantle. The slower release of these nutrients into our bloodstream seems to benefit healthy cardio-metabolic function.

Contrastingly, the dairy food matrix of butter has been linked with increased cholesterol levels and other disease markers, suggesting that each food item needs careful consideration.

However, further on in the report, a stronger case for whole-cheese consumption was made when observations were compiled about the results of studies comparing cheese and other dairy foods to supplements. Calcium, vitamin D, and protein are all commonly supplemented nutrients that are also present in cheese. Yet for markers of weight loss, bone density, and blood pressure, real cheese won out over the supplements.

The lengthy report concluded with a reminder that cheese and other full-fat dairy products are linked with an inverse effect – a reduced risk of – cardiovascular disease, stroke, coronary heart disease, and type-2 diabetes along with demonstrating the effectiveness of cheese as a delivery method for vital nutrients.

Now it is over one year later and the dairy matrix effect is still being investigated, with this new study from the Institute of Food and Health comparing the effect of full-fat cheese and butter on LDL cholesterol levels. Again, even though the saturated fat content is similar, the effect on cardio-metabolic health varies significantly.

The dairy food matrix report is enough to make a cheese-loving man jump for joy, and though further research is always needed to fully understand the role that any kind of food plays in our long-term health, cheese – queso – fromage – formaggio – Kase, seems to be in the clear.

Most cheeses are not healthy. Any fat that can be melted and then rehardens again, is considered a “bad fat” like butter, for instance.

Cheese also creates phlegm, like milk does and butter. And phlegm is a sign that your body wants rid of something.

Having said that, I love cheese. It’s a magnificent creation.

Cheese and curry? No!

Speaking of curry, we had a takeaway tonight - Prawn Massala - and my weird creature of a daughter dipped her chocolate muffin dessert into the sauce...and ate it.

I fear for her future. Seriously.

Yeah I made a sauce once that tasted like feet. My son actually said “Mum, this tastes like feet”.

I don’t like food that tastes like feet.

Having said all that, I do eat weird combinations of food...like I’ll have five jelly sweets, then some cherry tomatoes, then some raw mushrooms then a few slices of cheese.
And that could be a snack or lunch.

Ben once said that I ate like a kid who’s parents had gone out.

Weird cheese combinations....a chef once told me that stilton and strawberries eaten together were, in his word....orgasmic.

I have never tried it, just dont fancy it.

You do, you remind me of my sister in that way so much it's borderline creepy, dude.

And full pwish disclosure, both my wife and my sister are Geminis. Which means to you whatever it means to you! (How diplomatic of me. If I was a dinosaur I'd be the diplo-do-mat-icus. Which is, of course, a cross between a diplodocus and a do' mat.)

Cool

If you want to spice up a toasted cheese sandwich...

Spread chilli sauce (hotter the better..) on lightly toasted bread
Add some mashed avocado, if you're into avo'
Slice of tomato, with plenty of pepper
Then drown in grated or sliced&diced cheese


Put under griller until cheese is melted, but not turning rubbery..
fiesta
