Unfortunately, it seems like now a days we can find others to agree with our opinions no matter which view we have. While you have a point of other foods being addictive, cheese is different as it is concentrated milk. Mammal milk is designed to be addictive to keep the baby wanting more and growing big fast! Seems illogical it wouldn’t have a similar effect on humans consuming it in mass quantities.

The more calories per bite the more addictive the food is.

Really great information. Jack Norris spoke on this issue briefly and people were literally leaving mumbling “well I don’t believe that part.”

Ridiculous!

The fact that cheese is comforting, pleasurable, and familiar seems to be no more significant than the similar qualities I’m sure you’ll find in your own favorite foods. I for example like to douse all sorts of foods in Vegenaise, nutritional yeast and Sri Racha. Does this place me on a higher plane than my cheese pizza-gobbling neighbor? Ethically, perhaps; gustatorily speaking, no. The mature response is to focus on the ethical benefits, keep looking for better cheese substitutes, and keep promoting the ones we’ve got. (An upside to all this for vegan recruiters is that cheese withdrawal effects are probably also overblown, although the post doesn’t directly address that issue as far as I can see.)
