It’s official – cheese is addictive

Thanks to fellow addict Doug for bringing this story to my attention. Apparently cheese really is addictive.

Cheese is an especially interesting case. In our own research studies at the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, we�ve noticed that participants moving to a vegetarian diet have a harder time giving up cheese than almost any other food. In fact, cheese�s popularity may have less to do with its meltability and mouth-feel and more to do with its addictive qualities.
