The Cheese Stands Alone

"Scientists have discovered some promising new health benefits.
Cheddar makes your mouth water, literally: A one-ounce serving has
enough saliva stimulating calcium, protein and phosphorus to neutralize
tooth-damaging acids after a meal. And, according to a recent article
from The Journal of Contemporary Dental Practice, cheddar strengthens
enamel, too.
Pecorino Romano is a full-flavored Italian cheese that is made from
the milk of grass-fed sheep, which gives it higher-than-normal levels
of conjugated linoleic acid, which, according to recent studies, helps
reduce fat, suppress diabetes and inhibit cardiovascular disease."
