The Cheese Effect

Okay, so I know this is gonna sound weird, but my eyes sweat when I eat cheese.  It has done it for a while, mostly with cheddar cheese  While I was staying at my brother's place, I mentioned it to him - as I was chowing down on some cheese.  He looked at me like I had six heads.  Well, I had some cheese today and it happened.  So I used good old Google to search for it.  Guess what?  I'm not alone.  There's even a term for it:  The Cheese Effect.  In some people, one of the ingredients in cheese produces an adrenaline response and causes their eyes to sweat.  How freaky is that??
