The study also reveals that people consuming cheese regularly will prone to long life.
Professor for Food Chain Nutrition, Ian Givens said in a statement that, "They do seem to be associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and - particularly with yoghurt - Type 2 diabetes, which is an area of research we are trying to develop because there are 700 new cases every day".
Although cheese contains high levels of saturated fat - linked to bad heart health - the calcium in the food means less of that fat is absorbed by the body, it was discovered. In a report on their findings, researchers said that cheese is high in fat but it also contains potentially beneficial nutrients.
However, the researchers couldn't tell what impact long-term cheese consumption can have on health.
Cheese lovers, you just got a reason to load up on more cheese daily.
Here are our favourite photos from last night's supermoon
Since the Moon's orbit is elliptical, one side (apogee) is about 50,000 km farther from the Earth than the other (perigee). It was also a particularly bright supermoon because of the more intense sunlight that reflects off the Moon in the winter.
And though not eating breakfast may be thought to induce weight loss, as promoted by British actress Joanna Lumley, the study published in the Journal of Physiology says otherwise.
They found eating cheese frequently appeared to be beneficial for the heart rather than harmful.
"This study suggests an inverse association between cheese and health".
And if not, congratulations, because not only do you have great taste in dairy products, but you could also be cutting your chances of suffering a heart attack by 14 percent.
Far from having a negative effect, a number of large studies have shown dairy products to have a protective effect on factors relating to heart health. However, the study didn't assess the overall diets of the participants, so these results could be influenced by the fact that healthier and more affluent people are more likely to eat cheese. This is why the British Heart Foundation advises heart disease patients to forgo cheese and replace it with yogurt or milk.
