I was just joking about soymorphines having an effect (errr...affect?) I think it's more of a mental addiction than anything.

I never had trouble giving up cheese, but this was very interesting. I know people who've tried to give it up for allergies (my sis gave it up for a couple weeks and noticed a huge improvement in her skin) but then go back to it saying it's too hard. This explains a lot. Thanks!

Thanks Bilby4 for another take on this subject. I liked the first comment after the article.

Makes a great story but it's probably nonsense. Consider:
"Research on casomophin also found that it did not demonstrate 'reinforcing properties similar to those of morphine” and concluded that 'beta-casomorphin is not likely to become the focus of an addiction'.”
More of the takedown here and plenty of links to the research: skepticalvegan.com/2012/08/10/cheese

Great article! I recently read the book "The Pleasure Trap" by D. Lisle who also states that cheese is addictive for the same reason. When you think about how concentrated cheese is you know you're getting 10X the disease as you would from a cup of milk! Cancer is a virus. I do not want 10X the risk of getting a virus from a diseased animal!

That's very helpful Boni. I know several people - my husband included - who can go a long time eating totally vegan, but they lose all control when socially presented with a cheese platter.

As everyone knows, the hardest thing for me to let go of going vegan was ice cream, but many of you have difficulty giving up cheese. Any every vegan blogger I know tries to come up with the perfect cheez subsitute. This article from Yum Universe tells us why we have this addiction: www.yumuniverse.com/2011/04/25/dr-je
