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??
