If you like your food, no matter what it is, covered in cheese, I’ve got good news. A recent study suggests people who eat cheese live longer so go ahead and get that second helping of mac and cheese.
The study, which was published in The Lancet, reports eating cheese may lower your risk of stroke and cardiovascular disease. To determine this, researchers looked at the dietary habits of more than 130,000 people between the ages of 30 and 70 from more than 20 countries.
Results indicated that eating more than two servings of cheese per day, or other dairy products, could reduce the risk of a stroke and cardiovascular disease.
If we’re being honest, we probably would have eaten that second helping of mac and cheese either way, it’s good to have science on our side.
