What we fear is always somewhere in front or behind us, so when it comes to health, it is necessary to find out in time what we can do so that our fears do not come true. Scientists have proven, as always, that diet always somehow has something to do with it.

If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with osteoporosis, you are far from alone. About 54 million people in САД have osteoporosis, while about 200 million people worldwide are thought to have the disease, which can weaken bones and lead to uncomfortable breaks or painful fractures, according to the Clinic in Cleveland, not to mention the number of people at risk of developing osteoporosis.

Fortunately, there are certain things you can do and certain foods you can eat to help prevent osteoporosis. That includes including certain types of cheese in your regular diet, he reports Eat This Not That.

In a new study recently published in the journal "BMJ Nutrition, Prevention & Health", 66 women were divided into two groups and asked to consume either two ounces (57 grams or six slices) of cheese Jalsberg or about 1,75 ounces (50 grams) of cheese Camembert during a randomized clinical trial. They had to eat their assigned cheese for six weeks and then spend another six weeks consuming a different cheese. After running blood tests and looking at certain variables, those behind the study found that consuming Jarlsberg cheese helps prevent bones from becoming thinner.

If you are not familiar with Jarlsberg cheese, you should know that it is a "mild cheese made from cow's milk, classified in the category of Swiss cheeses."

Additionally, while both Jarlsberg and Camembert are similar when it comes to fat and protein content, experts note that Jarlsberg "is rich in vitamin K2, which can improve bone health in addition to calcium and vitamin D." Therefore, Jarlsberg cheese can help prevent osteoporosis.
