It turns out eating cheese isn’t a deal breaker for your diet. That’s what researchers in Ireland found after having 1,500 adults keep four-day food diaries noting how much dairy they ate.

After analyzing participant blood samples, researchers found that people who eat a lot of cheese didn’t have higher cholesterol than those who avoided the food. They also found that people who eat more dairy tend to have a lower body mass index.

While adults who ate a lot of cheese were ingesting more saturated fat, they surprisingly did not have the high cholesterol associated with it.

Low blood pressure was associated with eating cheese more than other dairy products.
