Is Casein Fattening America? 
Would you be willing to ingest a substance that produces heroin like changes in your brain ? Not achance you say? Well think again. Most days you are unknowingly ingesting a food substance that actson your brain like a drug. This food substance is called casein. Casein is the curd that forms when milk is left to sour and is the most commonly used milk protein in the food industry. However casein peptides react with opiate receptors in the brain thus mimicking the effects of opiate like drugs such asheroin and morphine. 
These drugs work by stimulating the feel goodchemicals in the brain such as serotonin and dopamine. You feel bad, you ingest the food, you feel goodfor a while at least and then you feel bad until the drug or food is taken again. The inclusion of caseinin foods will make a person more likely to become addicted to certain types of foods and can initiatethe vicious cycle of over eating which is so prevalent in society today.Casein is found in imitation sausages, soups, stews, fortified cereals, infant formulas, nutrition bars, bakery glazes, coffee whiteners, formulated meats, salad dressings, sauces, whipped toppings, cottagecheese and certain yogurts. Casein and caseinates are also used to give texture to foods and to extendtheir shelf life. Casein is used as a glaze in buns and pastries and in the dough used in pizzas.In many cases casein is not even listed in the ingredients which can be worrying to people who have agenuine dairy allergy. The presence of casein in processed foods can in susceptible individuals lead toanaphylaxis, a life threatening reaction.Since the export of casein to the USA begun in 1970's there has been a vast increase in obesity, heartdisease and diabetes. This is correlative data but there have been various studies conducted which havefocused on the negative effects of casein in the diet. A New Zealand scientist DR Corrie Mc Lachlan,chief executive of A2 corporation, believes that casein is responsible for thousands of cases of heartdisease world wide. He believes that casein is more likely to break up in the bloodstream and causedamage to arteries. He also links it to the development of diabetes in children. Any country with highdairy/casein consumption has high levels of heart disease such as Finland, Northern Ireland and Britain.
Studies in animals have shown that it can promote some forms of cancer, at least in animals. At Cornelluniversity for example DR T.Colin Campbell and his colleagues have found that casein is a strong promoter of tumor growth and other studies have shown it to promote the growth of coronary artery blockages.
Ireland is the biggest producer of casein in the world.
the world's leading producer of food additives, distributes casein world wide. Kerry group's origins date back to 1972 when thecompany was committed to the manufacture of milk protein/ casein for export to the USA.
. The casein study that showed the similarity in brain chemistry changes between casein and opiate like drugs were conducted in Wisconsin, ironically the home of KerryGroup's operations. Could there possibly have been some suspicion on the part of some scientists inWisconsin who were beginning to be concerned about the company's operations? After all foodreconstruction is big business, not necessarily about making food healthier but certainly making it moreflavored more appealing and more likely to be highly addictive. It also serves to make food cheaper to produce but at what cost to our health? The current annual sales of Kerry Group is 3.8 billion withoperations in over 15 countries. Obviously there is big money in selling casein and food additives tothe unsuspecting public.
Peptides from Casomorphin & Gliadorphin

What is Gliadorphin?
Gliadorphin (or gluteomorphin) is a peptide derived from the wheat protein gluten.Other related grains such as rye, barley and oats also contain the sequence of aminoacids found in gluten. Gliadorphin is very similar to casomorphin. Gliadorphin has been verified by mass spectrometry techniques to be present in urine samples of children with autism. Both casomorphin and gliadorphin are composed of seven amino acids, which are abbreviated below. Both caseomorphin and gliadorphin startwith the beginning N-terminal sequence tyr-pro (for tyrosine and proline) and theadditional pro (proline) in positions 4 and 6 of both peptides, as indicated below.

What is Casomorphin?
Casomorphin (or casomorphin) is a peptide derived from the milk protein casein.Casein is one of the major proteins in the mild of all mammals including cows, goatsand humans.Dr. Reichelt in Norway, Dr. Cade at the University of Florida, and others found thaturine samples from people withautism, PDD, celiac disease and schizophreniacontained high amounts of the casomorphin peptide in the urine. We suspect that these peptides may also be elevated in other disorders such aschronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and depression based on anecdotal reports of symptom remission after exclusion of wheat and dairy.
Why are These Peptides Important?
The peptides from gluten and casein are important because the react with opiatereceptors in the brain, thus mimicking the effects of opiate drugs like heroin andmorphine. These compounds have been shown to react with areas of the brain such asthe temporal lobes, which are involved in speech and auditory integration.
Children withautism frequently seem addicted to wheat and dairy products. Presumably, people with Autism and schizophrenia incompletely digest wheat anddairy products. These incompletely digested peptides are then absorbed into the bodyand bind ot opiate receptors, altering behavior and other physiological reactions.
