Dairy food has been getting a bad rap lately. Cheese in particular has garnered the reputation of being bad for your health, particularly your heart.

Well, like the superhero that it is, science has swooped in, cape blowing in the wind in a glorious pose to say “It’s Ok! Eat Cheese!”

According to Wired, scientist Dariush Mozaffarian says ” “There’s almost no evidence that cheese causes weight gain—and in fact, there’s evidence that it’s neutral at worst.”

The article also explains that it’s the things we eat with cheese that are the real danger. If you’re eating pepperoni pizza slathered in mozzarella, it won’t be the cheese that clogs your arteries, it would be the meat. The carbs from the bread could also have an impact on belly fat and raise your blood glucose levels.  The cheese is innocent, though, and you’re better off eating it with some grapes and nuts.
