I wish more personal health articles were as clear-cut in saying that “people who [do X], [enjoy Y].” Running, longer life, eating certain foods, gaining weight, etc. This article makes it clear that it's not life-hacking advice, to eat more cheese to be fitter, but rather that there's little or no association between eating cheese and all those benefits we seek—or the problems we want to avoid Meanwhile, besides being clear-cut and honest, it provides some useful context reminding us with a light-hearted tone of voice to not obsess. At least about eating cheese.

This was a fun, engaging, and very informative article. I'll be the first to admit that I have a cognitive bias towards wanting cheese to be a healthy or "neutral" food group, but this article cites multiple sources and dietary professionals. I will wait for more studies before claiming victory, but this is a great find and very well written.
