A study has confirmed to us what we have suspected our whole lives, cheese is actually really addictive. 

The study has explained, saying that Cheese contains a chemical called casein, which is a slow release protein, and after eating cheese (or other dairy product) this protein begins to break down, releasing casomorphins as it does so.

These have a 'drug-like' effect on your system and over time your body will begin to crave cheese and before you know it you're 3 blocks of Edam deep. 

The researchers who carried out the study also picked out pizza as the most addictive cheese-topped dish. Well, duh. 

Cheese is life and life is cheese.
