Cheese triggers the same part of the brain as hard drugs, say scientists
Geege Schuman stashed this in Cheese
Scientists studying dairy products found that in milk, casein has a minuscule dosage. But producing a pound of cheese requires about 10 pounds of milk — with addictive casein coagulating the solid milk fats and separating them from the liquids.
As a result the super-strength chemical becomes concentrated when in solid dairy form, so you’ll get a higher hit of addictive casein by tucking into a cheese sandwich than you will in your morning bowl of cereal.
So what you're saying is that I should eat cheese sparingly, lest I become addicted?
The article suggests that, yesh.
I swear most of eating right is a struggle against happy chemicals in the brain overreacting to things.
I'm beginning to believe if we can calm the brain we can do anything.
