  • Thoughts about being vegan – and what I dislike!

    19/11/2014 by  

    Hey how is it going as a vegan? Honestly, the first weeks were pretty tough without my beloved cheese. And I often craved a bit salt. But after some weeks It just went away. And when I googled around I found some very interesting information about that.

    When asked about the most missed product, many vegans answer “cheese.”  That’s because cheese contains the addictive opiate morphine. Say what!?! Backstory: In 1981, Eli Hazum and his colleagues at Wellcome Research Laboratories found that morphine is naturally occuring in both human and cow’s milk — to allow the baby cow (or baby human) to feel bonded to its mother, which encourages it to nurse and get its nutrients. The animal protein casein — also found in cheese —  produces opiate effects when digested. Crazy stuff. Isn’t it? Information is from this site
