A jury has come to a conclusion about the relationship between cheese and sleep. Some sites say cheese is a good sleep aid. Other sites warn that eating cheese before bed can cause insomnia.
So it stands to reason that we also don’t know if cheese induces nightmares.
Did that question keep you up at night? If so, you may be getting a good night’s sleep in no time. Because Sleep Junkie, a company on a mission to help everyone get a good night’s sleep, is conducting a study to determine if devouring cheese before bed leads to nightmares. Specifically, to determine whether different types of cheese have different effects on people in the Nightmare Division.
The study involved five testers, selected by Sleep Junkie, who ate different types of cheese (assigned by Sleep Junkie) before bed for three months to improve sleep quality, energy levels, and Keep a diary of your experience with incidence. of dreams and nightmares.
For their efforts, these “dairy dreamers,” as Sleep Junkie called them, each receive $1,000 plus the cost of cheese.
It may be a “dream” job for some, but the only people who need to apply are those who need to apply online at sleepjunkie.com. Consistent sleep schedule, no sleep problems, willingness to sleep alone during the study period, not lactose intolerant.
Of course, you should be willing to eat whatever kind of cheese you’re allotted. am.
I’m not interested in applying, but mostly because although cheese seems to be gaining popularity as a food, it doesn’t seem to be a particularly popular topic of conversation. It was a problem for Ma Cheese. For example, as far back as the early 1900s, British author GK Chesteron wrote that “(poets) have been strangely silent on the subject of cheese.”
I think this study is interesting, but especially since the jury is out on whether or not we remember our dreams, I wonder if five people’s dairy diaries will be definitive on this subject. Not being sure, I have to admit a degree of skepticism about it. , may not have been able to remember it.
And even if dairy dreamers had nightmares, could you be certain that the nightmares were due to the cheese ingestion itself? Instead, nightmares can come from the thought of slicing cheese with a knife in bed or crumbling between the sheets.
Of course, I’m skeptical, but I think research is at least as much about marketing as it is about conducting accurate research. It gets a lot of free press (including here!).
But the most important question is whether the research context rules out the possibility of a nightmare. After all, for the dairy dreamers themselves, the $1,000 thought should ward off terrifying REM visions. dream!
