The French are eating cheese incessantly, including noble * molded* cheeses. It can be the reason for their being the healthiest of the nations in what concerns cardiovascular diseases. They intake 30% more animal fats than the Americans, but few of them suffer from excessive weight or heart dysfunctions like the Americans do.
Scientists have been looking into this phenomenon for years and are inclined to bring the French’s good health down to molded cheese and wine.
The Daily Mail reports that frequent intake of mellow sorts of cheese helps prevent many diseases. Molded cheeses possess anti-inflammatory properties that prevent the development of cardiovascular diseases, arthritis, have a good influence on the gastrointestinal tract and slow down the ageing processes.
