Good News for Cheese Lovers

The Improbable Research blog points out a new study by the British Cheese Board demonstrating that eating cheese does not cause nightmares. Earlier the Board sponsored research to develop the "optimal cheese sandwich". Definitely an important finding.

However, the actual effect depended on the type of cheese:
Stilton causes unusual dreams,
with 75% of men and 85% of women eating Stilton experiencing odd and vivid dreams. Examples of these mad dreams included a vegetarian crocodile upset because it could not eat children, and soldiers fighting each other with kittens rather than guns. [...]
British brie tended to give women nice dreams, such as Jamie Oliver cooking dinner in their kitchen, while the men had odd dreams such as having a drunken conversation with a dog.

UPDATE: The article does not actually link to the "Perfect Cheese Sandwich". Here's a link to the details from the British Cheese Board:
• The amount of cheese for the optimal "cheesy aroma" varies with the type of cheese
• "...cheesiness is enhanced by a thin spreading of either butter or margarine on the bread, rather than using dry bread." Tomato also adds to the "cheesiness".
See the full article for details.
