- 1. Why Are You Addicted To Cheese?Copyright (c) 2008 Stephen LauCheese is a part of the American culture. Americans enjoy eating cheese, and some are evenaddicted to it.Is there such a thing as cheese addiction? Is it an overstatement that you could, in fact, be addictedto cheese?In the 1980s, scientists already discovered a trace of morphine in milk and dairy products, inparticular, cheese.Morphine, which is an addictive opiate, was found to be present in cow. Specifically, casein, a milkprotein, releases opiates upon digestion. Cheese contains more casein than is found in milk fromeither cows or humans, because cheese is concentrated protein with water and lactose sugarextracted. Accordingly, eating too much cheese may result in cheese addiction.Is cheese addiction bad for your health? Well, once you stop your cheese addiction, you may reapsubstantial health benefits.Cheese is concentrated protein: a 2-oz serving has about 15 grams of fat, most of which is saturated,giving you bad cholesterol and blocking your arteries. Stop eating cheese may help reduce your badcholesterol level.Too much cheese may give you arthritis and migraine attacks. Research showed that cheese triggersmigraines in many patients, and that cheese is also implicated in 50 percent of rheumatoid arthritisdue to its high fat content.

Research also showed that cheese increases insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I), which is anaggressive promoter of cancer and abnormal cell growth.Milk products may play havoc with your absorption of vitamin D, which is derived mainly fromexposure to sunlight and which has to be activated by the liver and the kidneys. However, too muchcalcium from dairy products may suppress instead of activating the vitamin D in your body.Insufficient vitamin D increases the risk of prostate cancer.In addition, cheese, which is rich in animal fat, increases the production of testosterone, which islinked to prostate cancer.Cheese has much more casein (a protein that breaks down during digestion to form opiates -addictive substances) than is found in milk, ice cream, butter or other dairy products. Therefore,cheese, which has 70 percent of its calories from fat, is not only addictive due to the presence ofopiates, but also fattening. Yes, cheese makes you fat!Cheese addiction may lead to high blood pressure. A 2-oz serving of cheddar cheese has about 350milligrams of sodium, and a cup of low-fat cottage cheese has over 900 milligrams of sodium - andsodium is a critical contributing factor in high blood pressure.The dairy industry has colluded with fast food restaurants to add more cheese to their foods to triggeryour cheese craving. A case in point, SUBWAY signed a contract with the industry in 1996 to includecheese in some of the sandwiches.The cheese industry may be promoting all the health benefits of cheese because it wants you to behooked on to cheese.Stop your cheese craving and break your cheese addiction!

Only time will and can change your taste buds (it takes nomore than a few weeks).Eat a fiber-rich diet, such as grains, fruits, and vegetables. A high-fiber diet controls and regulatesyour blood sugar level to stop your cheese craving.Boost your appetite-controlling hormone (leptin) through eating enough calories (in other words, nodieting to reduce caloric intake), a low-fat diet, and exercising.Learn to cope with stress to reduce the propensity to use cheese eating as a solution to youremotional problems.Motivate yourself to get out of cheese addiction with daily affirmations of the health benefits of noteating cheese, such as lower blood pressure, a healthier heart, and stronger bones, among others.Too much cheese is not good for you!------Stephen Lau is a researcher, writing medical research for doctors and scientists.
