Why is cheese addictive? Because it contains opiates!

Opiates are narcotics, and they produce intense feelings of pleasure followed by a calm, drowsy feeling. Opiates are addictive. Milk naturally contains opiates. Ten pounds of milk are required to make one pound of hard cheese.

The most wholesome milk from organically raised cows naturally contains a powerful opiate in the morphine family called casomorphin. Concentrated milk products (cheese, ice cream, and milk chocolate) contain increased quantities of these addictive narcotics.

Let's examine milk chocolate, for example. The three major ingredients of milk chocolate are, in order of abundance, sugar, milk, and chocolate. Three-four pounds of milk are required to make one pound of milk chocolate. It is no wives tale that milk chocolate addicts crave their "drug." Indeed, that is exactly what milk-morphine is, a drug.

Eighty percent of cow's milk protein is casein. After eating milk chocolate, casein breaks down in the stomach to produce additional casomorphine, a peptide opiate.

Nature's way is to include chemical messengers which make nursing pleasurable. That same mechanism is what also makes giving up dairy so difficult. Most American adults have never been weaned from the addictive effects of dairy products.
