Roquefort Cheese: It's the Fondue of Youth!

Roquefort cheese, which apparently has anti-inflammatory properties

What if you were told that cheeses were giving scientists ideas for anti-aging beauty products? SCORE!  Right?  

Here's what the experts are saying:

French women enjoy the joint-longest life expectancy in Europe, at 85.3 years, against 82.3 years for British women.
The group of doctors at a Cambridge-based biotech company developed the technology, which helps to identify the new anti-inflammatory factors.
The team from Lycotec, led by Dr Ivan Petyaev and Dr Yuriy Bashmakov, suggested the new properties could be extracted to help the fight against cardiovascular disease or in anti-ageing creams.
They detailed their work in a study, published in the Medical Hypotheses journal, titled: “Could cheese be the missing piece in the French paradox puzzle?”
“The anti-inflammatory factors found in these cheeses could be extracted and used independently or as a part of today's pharmaceutical or beauty products,” they wrote.

So I guess this means our cheese and wine platters aren't as bad as we thought they were.  Until stories get published to the contrary, I choose to believe that my favorite food, cheese, is actually GOOD for me!  So Bon Appetit!
