    Will Cheese kill us?

    Somewhere along the the line I got the idea that Cheese is terribly unhealthy, yet I fucking love it.
    I like a tasty, tangy cheese and I'm sitting here, between drinks, taking a guilty bite every now and then out of a lovely chink of gouda I picked up at the market.
    I really do enjoy it.
    So what do you think? Cheese, heart attack inducing devils food, or up there with my other favourite foods, onion, garlic, tomatoes, peppers, apples, papaya, jack daniels?

    ^Not to worry. If it was bad for you, I would have been dead many years ago.

    Yes, but could it, itself, be the cause of the cholesterol problem?
    And how much is too much?

    700grams of hard cheese or 900grams of soft cheese can kill you if dropped on your head from 120 metres

    If you sit very still holding a piece of Gorgonzola for long enough the blue mold can grow over you completely blocking your pores and causing you to suffocate - like the girl in Goldfinger but smellier

    something then that you would need to discuss with your doc.
    what else you eat, exercise and age are factors
    a lot of cholestrol comes from the liver
    we're the only animal to use milk from another animal
    except maybe a cat
    anyway it's professional advice you need.
    know one guy who calls cheese, muck.
    i love it but only once or twice a week.

    Seriously, some new science claims that the fats in cheese among other products is not anywhere near as harmful as previously thought, everything in moderation of cause but cheese should be safe to eat.

    Saturated fat may not always be harmful - Telegraph

    some of the most important factors to good health are sleeping and dreaming
    as cheese is the dream generator without equal
    it's healthy
    add some wine or other alcohol to help dilute the fat
    and you're sorted !

    I just love your thinking...and your humour....

    Cheese is more beneficial than detrimental to health...IMO...without having to look up a huge number of links to prove it to anyone..love the way Asian teenagers dare each other to smell a good "blue cheese"...but consider rotting fish perfectly okay....

    Besides...what else are you supposed to eat with a nice red wine at the end of an evening?....Milk in tea to kill the tannin...same as cheese with wine...

    Cheese may be bad for us all. As one day the local milkman ( who also sold cheese) twated my friends dad.

    Further to this, a few years later whilst on a stag do to blackpool the lads went to a strip club and whilst the nice young lady was defrocking the milkman started wxnking himself of on the stage infront of the whole pub!

    No one bought cheese or milk off him again. Anyway he is dead now it might have been the cheese that killed him, or the fact that he jumped off a bridge.

    I like cheese, if it smells like a half price Pattayan streetwalker who hasnt had a shower for a week then i will gladly spread it on a cracker or two.

    ^ Put a good English cheese over your broccoli.

    Maybe one will cancel out the bad effects of the other.

    Both are superb in the pocket of a chicken breast with a cheddar cheese sauce....Sod the cholesterol, it caught up with my Nan when she was 92!.....who outlived my food concious Mother....(I went to my Nan's for decent food...learnt to cook from her and taught my wife the same...Yorky puds are still heaven because of this... )

    Sorry I lost the caret key on my keyboard yesterday...went AWOL for no apparent reason...promise I did not keep it under stressful captivity...

    After a stint of about 6 years in the North of Canada, ended up in the UK foe a visit. Found Skipton Market and a Cheese stall. All rounds, tons of the bloody stuff.

    Asked the guy if he had any Lancashire, got this funny look and he nodded to the next stall where he had about 6 different ones. I think I spent 50 pounds!

    The stuff we get here is so watered down it is only a hint of its original self,

    I get these great chunks of mature Gouda off rounds, great with a drink, also Edam rounds.
    here in China it's pretty much take what you can get and it's a constant search for cheese.
    I know an American guy who seriously considers kraft slices cheese.
    Good bloke apart from that.
    it's actually possible to buy an American cheddar here called great lakes, No idea what it tastes like, it's horrendously expensive and I can get NZ Anchor tasty Matured Cheddar at a place in the market district.

    Nothing beats a good slab of cheese on toast, (+onions, tomato sauce base and Worcestershire sauce / grilled) before bedtime to get the old dream monkeys working.

    There's no real arguing that cheese is a health food- too much fat, too much cholesterol, too much salt for that. Then there's lactose intolerance & stomach acidity (which may well be at the core of a lot of 'modern' ailments, such as diabetes and cancer).

    But it's absolutely delicious (well, decent cheese), and I reckon there's a mitigating factor for the health conscious- cheese mixes really well with healthy stuff like nuts, salad veges, raw onion and dried & fresh fruits. The Hebrews are right though- you shouldn't really mix cheese with meat. It zaps up your stomach acidity, and you don't digest either as well. But who can pass up a cheese and salami?

    OP, anything that tastes good, feels good is bad for you.
