Cheese Not So Bad For Cholesterol, After All

New research released by Danish scientists, and sponsored by the Danish dairy industry, has found that cheese and butter affect LDL (bad) cholesterol levels differently. The study tested 50 people over several months, with some consuming butter and others cheese.

The research indicated that butter eaters experienced a 7 percent increase in their LDL cholesterol levels, while cheese eaters experienced no LDL change. Scientists say this may be due to the higher calcium in cheese, but more research needs to be done.
