Warning: Cheese Can Put Your Health At Risk

Despite being beneficial to your body, eating cheese can also put your health at risk.

According to the University of California’s Berkeley Wellness, despite being rich in calcium and other nutrients, cheese can also be unhealthy.

“Cheese has merits, including its bone-building calcium. But the way we usually eat it—slathered on pizza, poured over nachos, stacked on crackers—cancels out any health benefits. After all, cheese is high in calories (about 100 per ounce, on average) and fat (six to nine grams per ounce, most of which is saturated), and it often contains a lot of sodium,” it noted. 

Here are the things that you must be aware of when it comes to cheese:

1. Cheese provides calcium and protein—as well as vitamin A, B12, riboflavin, zinc, and phosphorus—and is a source of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) which may have anti-cancer, weight-reducing, and heart-protective effects. However, one must eat a lot of cheese first before he/she can get meaningful amounts of CLA; which also means that he/she will also be getting lots of unhealthy saturated fat and calories. To note, low-fat cheese contains less CLA while nonfat cheese contains none.

2. A 2009 study in Nutrition & Metabolism, which was funded by the National Dairy Council, found that cheese and other dairy food may help prevent weight gain after dieting; while another study found that regular cheese eaters gained less weight over time than those who ate cheese less often. On the other hand, other studies—including one from Johns Hopkins in 2008—revealed that people who eat more cheese tend to be more overweight.

3. Cheese may not be especially good for your heart—but some research suggests that it may not be so bad for it either, at least when it’s part of an overall healthy diet. To note, the Mediterranean diet, which is associated with many health benefits—such as lowered risk of cardiovascular disease—allows moderate amounts of cheese. More over, cheese and other dairy food are an important part of the anti-hypertension DASH diet.

4. A large Swedish study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found a link between cheese (at least two ounces a day) and reduced risk of colorectal cancer in women. Other studies, however, have not found this benefit; few even linked dairy products such as cheese to increased prostate and ovarian cancer.

5. Reduced-fat, low-fat and non-fat cheeses are good choices if you eat more than an ounce a day, or if a recipe calls for large amounts of cheese.
