Cheese and Constipation

share this article

The myth that cheese causes constipation is still common even though no scientific evidence supports it. Constipation is not caused by any individual food – including cheese.

Problems with constipation are generally a result of lifestyle-related factors or certain medications. Health professionals recommend that people who suffer from constipation eat enough fibre-rich foods (whole grain cereals, fruits, vegetables), drink more liquids (water, milk, tea), and get regular exercise.
