No matter what kind of natural cheese you enjoy eating you are certainly doing your body a great favor.  I am not talking about factory-processed cheese either as this processed cheese that comes in slices or worst in a can will surely wreck any plans of you staying in and losing weight.  This great and wonderful natural product is not only tasty but also works for cancer prevention as it contains substances called Conjugated Linoleic Acid and Sphingolipids which help in cancer prevention and treatment.  Cheese is also good for fighting cavities as it is very high in calcium and if you want strong teeth you better eat natural cheeses.  Also natural cheese is very low in lactose, it is only when the milk is pasteurized that the lactose levels go high, and eating cheeses like blue, Swiss, cheddar and Monterey can be very helpful in preventing tooth decay if continually eaten as a snack throughout the day.  This calcium is also great for your bones and will strengthen them and keep them strong as Vitamin B also comes into play, which is especially good for kids, senior citizens and lactating women for strong bones and cartilages.
