Cheese - a good choice!

This should come as good news to all you cheese lovers!  I spotted it today on Dr.Mercola's website.

PS  TJ's has a lovely grass-fed Irish cheese that is called KerryGold Dubliner. (do not buy the low-fat version!)
They also make a grass-fed butter.  It's just the best!

Cheese contains the powerful nutritional triad of calcium, vitamin D and vitamin K2, which together channel calcium into your bones and teeth while keeping it out of your arteries; this, combined with its omega-3 fats, make cheese a very heart-healthy food
  • The cheese you select should be made from high-quality milk, ideally raw organic milk from grass-pastured animals that are never fed grain or soy; avoid processed “cheese foods” as they contain chemical additives
  • Recent concerns about the salt content of natural cheese are overblown when compared to the massive sodium levels in processed food, especially when you take into account how much processed food people typically consume
  • Excellent cheese picks due to their high K2 levels are Edam, Gouda, and brie, but cheddar, Colby, hard goat cheese, Swiss and Gruyere are good choices as well
