If you needed another excuse to have some cheese today, then look no further!

Because it turns out that cheese may not be so bad for you after all ...

A recent study by the University College Dublin has found that consuming cheese can make you healthier and skinnier!

The study - which looked at the impact of dairy foods on the health of 1,500 Irish people - found that while people who had large amounts of cheese consumed higher amounts of saturated fat, they did not have higher blood LDL cholesterol levels.

"What we saw was that in the high consumers they had a significantly higher intake of saturated fat than the non-consumers and the low consumers and yet there was no difference in their LDL Cholesterol levels," Dr Emma Feeney revealed.

"We have to consider not just the nutrients themselves but also the matrix in which we are eating them in and what the overall dietary pattern is, so not just about the food then, but the pattern of other foods we eat with them as well."

Cheese lovers also tended to have a lower body mass index, lower percentage of body fat, lower waist size and lower blood pressure.

Good to know!
