In their study, researchers gathered results from around 140 adults who took part and completed their 12-week test. All participants were divided into 3 groups. In the first group, people ate 80g (or about 3 servings) of regular, high-fat cheese every day.

Having analyzed received data, scientists have come to the conclusion that eating full-fat cheese does not hurt the hearts of the participants. Moreover, it seemed to provide some protection from cardiovascular disease and metabolic disease.
