Sainsbury and Tesco both sell unpasteurised cheese (both do cheddars from Canada, if I recall correctly, and Sainsburys has some other unpasteurised french cheeses.

Aged, unpasteurized, and grass fed cheeses are the best. The longer they are aged, the less lactose is in the cheese. The grass Fed is the most important, as the CLA gets concentrated. In addition, all unpasteurized cheese are required to be... (more)

Avoid mold. Many mycotoxins (compounds formed by molds) are well-known carcinogens (e.g. aflatoxin). While the mold you might be culturing on your cheese could be benign, it could also be one with some toxicity. I'd say let the cheesemakers deal... (more)
