Eating Cheese Daily May Be Good For You, Study Finds

CBS Local — Cheese fans around the world, rejoice! The study you’ve been waiting for has arrived. Researchers have found that eating cheese every day is good for your health and may decrease your chance of developing heart disease. The findings, published in December’s European Journal of Nutrition, looked at 15 separate studies that followed over 200,000 people in the U.S. and Europe. Researchers say people who ate large amounts of cheese lowered their risk of developing heart disease by 14 percent and were 10 percent less likely to have a stroke compared to people who didn’t eat cheese. “Cheese can be high in probiotics, which tend to put you in less of an inflammatory state,” Dr. Allan Stewart told Time. “There is some evidence that cheese—as a substitute for milk, for example—may actually have a protective effect on the heart.” The cheese-is-good-for-you study we all needed is here to rescue 2017 https://t.co/gHxgMESSDq pic.twitter.com/7LGQBtTFHP — UPROXX (@UPROXX) December 5, 2017 The director of aortic surgery at Mount Sinai Medical Center added that the new report is great for cheese lovers, but people should not overindulge on the tasty snack. “This is not the same as eating a big slice of cheesy pizza every day… But on the upside, a bit of cheese on a cracker doesn’t sound unreasonable.” Researchers from Soochow University in China added that the high levels of cal...

Heterochronic parabiosis is the process of linking the circulatory systems of an old and young animal. It improves measures of aging in the older individual, and worsens measures of aging in the younger individual. Researchers use this technique to try to pinpoint the important signaling and other cell behavior changes that take place with advancing age. This isn't just a matter of looking at signals in the bloodstream, however. Researchers can analyze any of the changing gene expression patterns and biochemical relationships inside cells, as they respond to the altered environment. That is the case in the open access pape...

Prevalence of Self-Reported Hypertension and Antihypertensive Medication Use Among Adults Aged ≥18 Years - United States, 2011-2015. MMWR Morb Mortal Wkly Rep. 2018 Feb 23;67(7):219-224 Authors: Fang J, Gillespie C, Ayala C, Loustalot F Abstract Hypertension, which affects nearly one third of adults in the United States, is a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke (1), and only approximately half of those with hypertension have their hypertension under control (2). The prevalence of hypertension is highest among non-Hispanic blacks, whereas the prevalence of antihypertensive medication use ...

Google researchers predicted cardiovascular risk factors not previously thought to be quantifiable in retinal images using artificial intelligence, according to a study published in Nature Biomedical Engineering. Scientists were able to identify risk factors such as age, gender, smoking status, blood pressure and major adverse cardiac events by only looking at the eye. Cardiovascular diseases are lethal and widespread According to the WHO, an estimated 17 million people die of cardiovascular diseases, particularly heart attacks and strokes, every year. Looking only at the statistics of heart diseases, one in every fourth d...

We have read with great interest the article by Bezerra et  al,1 in which an etiological classification of stroke in patients with Chagas heart disease using different systems is presented. By studying a tertiary referral center population composed of 32 patients with Chagas disease with stroke, the authors were able to show that although cardioembolic str oke affects the majority of patients, atherosclerosis and small-vessel occlusion still were important causes of stroke in patients with this condition.

New research, which was presented at the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s annual conference, has found that moderate drinking is linked to a longer life. Drinking about two glasses of wine or beer a day was linked to an 18% drop in a person’s risk of early death—an even stronger effect than the life-preserving practice of exercise, according to the researchers. The results came from the 90+ Study, a research project out of the University of California Irvine’s Institute for Memory Impairments and Neurological Disorders that examines the habits of people who live to at least 90. ...

Ischemic strokes can induce cardiac structural and functional damage. Essentially stroke-induced heart injury (SIHI) is part of a wider spectrum of brain injuries (eg, cerebral infarction, intracranial hemorrhage) leading to heart disease, known as neurogenic heart disease. Similarly, the concept of atrial fibrillation (AF) diagnosed after stroke (AFDAS) was established to reflect the complexity of this specific type of AF that is unknown until the time of stroke [1]. The detection of AF after ischemic stroke is usually regarded as the cause of the stroke (cardiogenic AFDAS).
