If you can’t get enough cheese, there is reportedly some science behind that feeling! The Doctors examine why eating just one piece always seems so difficult.
“This is a problem for me. I suffer with this every day of my life… cheese addiction!” a brave ER physician Travis Stork admits with a smile. “I love cheese!”
We’re guessing Dr. Stork is not the only one out there battling the urge devour the delectable dairy product on the daily, and now science appears to have uncovered why we sometimes just can’t say no to another piece.
“Apparently cheese can affect the brain in a similar way to morphine, probably not to quite that extent, but your brain reacts to cheese like many other addictive substances. Why? There’s actually something in the cheese. It’s casein. Every time you eat cheese, your body has to break it down and apparently it has a string of amino acids that in the body can resemble – I’m not sure I one hundred percent agree with this – how morphine might act. It’s called casomorphin.”
He adds, “I’ve never felt like I’m on morphine after eating cheese, but I have felt like I’m in heaven.”
Family medicine physician Dr. Rachael Ross says this is a good example of how the real product is sometimes better than a faux alternative.
“At the grocery store, that cheese-like product, that people are buying and making grilled cheese out of, let’s let that go and go for the natural cheese because you’ll have a feel good moment afterwards,” she adds.
The Doctors note that natural cheese is a good source of calcium and protein, so skip the cheese-like stuff and get the real deal next time you’re shopping!
