Cheese is as Addicting as Drugs!
Last week we found out that pizza is the most addicting food out there but the same study conducted by the University of Michigan finds that cheese is just as addictive as drugs!
This is no surprise though, cheese is so gouda! It's the same deal as why pizza is so addicting. It's because of an ingredient called casein (found in milk products) which releases opiates called casomorphins.
"[Casomorphins] really play with the dopamine receptors and trigger that addictive element," registered dietitian Cameron Wells told Mic."
According to Mic.com, Americans eat 35 pounds of cheese a year! It's more than tripled since 1970.
So basically cheese is crack and we're all doomed, that is unless we eat it in moderation.
But admitting we have a problem is the first step. My name is Christine and I'm addicted to cheese. No shame here :)
