A new study indicates that a little bit of cheese is good for you.

Researchers from China and the Netherlands found that people who ate small amounts of cheese daily were less likely to have strokes or develop heart disease than people who abstained or ate cheese rarely.

They say those who got the most benefit were eating an ounce-and-a-half a day of cheese a day, about the size of a matchbook.
