You have a cholesterol problem and you go to doctor, then the doctor advices you to avoid animal made fat stuff to reduce cholesterol, is that right? The answer is yes. This is the only answer that we get from the doctors to reduce cholesterol.  But now Danish researchers have proved that cheese is not that bad as compare to butter for the increase of cholesterol.

Students published that the people having cheese have bad cholesterol or lower LDL, but Dr. Elizabeth Jackson said, “Children have done their job well, but they didn’t change the view of the cardiologist”.

The researchers from University of Copenhagen started to learn that, what is the effect of cheese and butter on heart in terms of HDL, LDL and total cholesterol level? To do the research they publish an advertisement in a local newspaper. After that people started reverting on that advertisement and the research begun after they got volunteers to do some research. They were around 50 and were under observation with control diet added with an equal amount of cheese or butter.

The cheese or butter made by cow milk was given in equal quantity of 13% to each and every one. In six weeks, each person ate an equal amount of cheese or butter and after they were told to leave for 14 days for having their normal routine of diet. After fourteen days all the person were switched. The cheese-eating group was given butter and the butter-eating group was given cheese to have. After six weeks when the result came in front, it was seen that people having cheese didn’t found any increase in LDL, whereas people having butter increased the level of LDL to 7% in their body.

While eating cheese the cholesterol level was dropped slightly as compare to butter eaters. The researcher didn’t find any fecal fat for cheese eaters. The researcher found that cheese had Calcium and proteins. The students of Danish Dairy Board and The National Dairy Research Institute gave the students from University of Copenhagen support.
