Cheese & Long Life...More proof that cheese is good for you

And yet again, another study indicating that eating cheese not only is good for you, but can extend your life!  The article which is entitled:
Cheese: the secret to a longer life and faster metabolism? in The Telegraph on Sunday 23 August 2015, sites a new Danish study that links cheese consumption with creating a faster metabolism and reduced obesity. 

  "Compared with milk intake, cheese consumption significantly reduced urinary citrate, creatine, and creatinine levels and significantly increased the microbiota-related metabolites butyrate, hippurate, and malonate. Correlation analyses indicated that microbial and lipid metabolism could be involved in the dairy-induced effects on blood cholesterol level", according to the Danish study quoted by the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry

Wha how!  Add to this that non-pasterised milk cheeses are chock full of probiotics, minerals and vitamins and it's time to go out and get yourself a supply of beautiful, non-pasterised cheese and start making up some inroads into healthy living.
