Is there anything in cheese that interferes with our dreams?

Question

What effect does cheese have on dreams?

Charlie, Reigate

Answer

Despite a number of scientific studies over the past few years - all of which were inconclusive - there is no direct link between cheese and dreams. Eating cheese late at night can cause indigestion which interrupts sleep, particularly the REM period, in which dreams occur. The mythical link between dreams and cheese came from Dickens’ Scrooge, who blamed his ghostly visits on a ‘crumb of cheese’.
