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!

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 -a ddiction/

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!
