fat feline be you. for your enjoyment:

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.
