No, seriously, it really is. And it isn’t just for the Wisconsin Cheesehead.
Yes, Iowa, Illinois and Missouri, we can partake and reap the Wisconsin benefits. So go ahead and use more Blu Cheese, sprinkle on more Parmesan, cut up some more Cheddar, melt more Velveta. Your heart will thank you.
Why is this the case? It’s actually more simple than you may have suspected. Men were studied after eating milk and cheese, their digestive tracts were producing more TMAO, which is a microbe that breaks down food and helps with reducing inflammatory stomach issues.
Of course, the calcium content helps with strengthening your teeth and bones, but it could help your heart, now as a result of the added TMAO. It does not help, however, with cholesterol, so don’t take this study as a license to indulge, like Homer did, but like anything in moderation the benefits can outweigh the negative consequences.
