" . . . The researchers found the consumption of any kind of dairy to be associated with a 2 percent lower risk of death from any cause, while the consumption of a dairy diet of mostly cheese was associated with an 8 percent lower total mortality risk. The risk of death from a stroke was 4 percent lower with total dairy consumption and 7 percent lower with the consumption of milk alone. . . "

The study spawned this op-ed in the Washington Post, "EAT CHEESE LIVE FOREVER EAT CHEESE NEVER DIE".
