Eat Cheese, Live Longer

A recent study published in the journal Nature Medicine reported that eating cheese β€” specifically the aged kind containing the compound spermidine, as found in blue cheese β€” was linked to a longer life in mammals when tested on mice.

β€œThe mice do not only live longer when we supplement spermidine to the drinking water, but they are also healthier in terms of cardiac function,” Frank Madeo, co-author of the study and a professor at the University of Graz in Austria, told Medical Daily.

The study observed 800 Italians and found that those who ate more cheese had lower blood pressure, a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and 40 percent lower risk of heart failure.
