    Also in Jordan there is a type of cheese made in "Jerash" and it's called [Jarasheyeh]
    I take it "seyeh" means "cheese" (or perhaps "from")..?

    My cholesterol is high, & cheese is where it was coming from, so out it goes.

    Life that is.
    The French seem to do just fine with cheese, and are relatively healthy.

    Maybe you should think about becoming French.

    Good logic, but it's not the meaning. "seyeh" is added to the city's name to make an adjective.

    The so called "French Paradox" is more than likely a collectively held (by the French & others) paradigm based on the insufficient gathering of data.

    Unfortunately for them & the rest of us.

    I eat a very healthy mixed diet, low in saturated fat (apart from cheese) much of which is from our garden & the gardens of friends. The eggs we eat are free range, organic & again, from our friends indulged chooks. I've been an ovo lacto vegetarian for 3 years, though now I'm an ovo vegetarian.

    From wiki:

    Validity questioned

    Nevertheless, the medical causes of the French paradox are still not entirely clear and research continues. Meanwhile, some researchers have questioned altogether the validity of this paradox, although it is clear that dietary habits, particularly those that involve saturated fat, act as significant determinants of coronary heart disease. This view has recently received broad support through the results of the Nurses' Health Study run by the Women's Health Initiative. After accumulating approximately 8 years of data on the diet and health of 49,000 post-menopausal American women, the researchers found that the balance of saturated versus unsaturated fats does indeed affect heart disease risk, though the consumption of trans fat grossly exceeds the risk posed by saturated fat intake.

    Besides the French cheeses Roquefort and Brie my personal favorite is the typical Dutch Boerenkaas (Cannot find an English explanation).
    This is the best cheese I know of.. it's a little expensive and rather fat but I eat it everyday.



    Not sure if you can get this abroad but also a very nice old cheese is Old Amsterdam.

    You just need a good sharp knife. Even if they're not perfect cubes, they don't taste any less good with a beer. ^_^
