Roquefort Cheese Likely Extending French Life

Roquefort Cheese Likely Extending French Life

A team of researchers at a Cambridge-based biotech company Lycotec has published a study in Medical Hypothesis, which revealed why French people tend to live longer than other people.

It has been told that people from France do not sleep alone ever. Also, they rarely get fat and are better parents. Even wrinkles rarely like to visit them. And the only particular reason behind the same seems Roquefort cheese.

The team says the cheese also has anti-inflammatory properties, particularly when the same is ripen. These features protect lining of the stomach and the skin surface.

It is likely that their lifespan extension is because of their large consumption of the sheep-milk blue cheese. The cheese form is aged in caves towards the south of France and it is being said that the same has the ability to avert cardiovascular disease.

Since cardiovascular diseases often become the cause of deaths, they are preventing the disease unknowingly and thereby preventing deaths from occurring early.

"We hypothesize that cheese consumption, especially of moulded varieties, may contribute to the occurrence of the `French paradox. Moulded cheeses, including Roquefort, may be even more favourable to cardiovascular health", the researchers were quoted as saying.
