Can I Still Eat Cheese?

Q: I love cheese but my nurse sister says it’s a real artery clogger. Should I cut it out of my diet?

A: Cheese is naturally high in saturated fat, which can raise cholesterol and your risk for heart disease. But if you really love cheese, you shouldn’t have to avoid it completely. There are plenty of delicious low-fat cheeses available. Try several different types until you find your favorite.
