Probiotic Cheese Boosts Immune System of Elderly

Some interesting news to report to you now, as it has been revealed that eating cheese can improve your immune system by acting as a carrier for probiotic bacteria.

As reported from The Telegraph, a daily intake of probiotic cheese can help to reduce deterioration of the immune system which occurs when you start to get old.

Lead author Dr Fandi Ibrahim from the University of Turku in Finland had this to say on the new findings: “We have demonstrated that the regular intake of probiotic cheese can help to boost the immune system and that including it in a regular diet may help to improve an elderly person’s immune response to external challenges.”

What are your thoughts on the new developments? Will you start eating more probiotic cheese as a result of the findings, or will you wait until more tests are done?

My physician has been telling me for more than a decade that “you are in excellent health, 20 years younger than your chronological age [I am 68),EXCEPT that you keep flatlly refusing my advice to elimate cheese from your diet.”

Thanks for the heavy artillery!


I already eat and enjoy a variety of cheeses, as different probiotic flora help in different ways. I also consume plain, live yogurt with some frequency for the same reason.


I no longer pay any attention to studies. Something next month will say the opposite. I will eat the exact same amount of cheese as I did last week.
