As much as I hate the series Mythbusters they did get one thing correct. Cheese is a good food to eat if you want to get some sleep; it is a proven fact that cheese activates chemicals that induce a relaxed state of mind.
However, having said that, I need to cut down my intake because the cheese isn't helping my sleep; the cheese gives me short power naps of two hours, and this leaves me feeling tired. The other day, the rest was so intense that I woke with a racing heartbeat, in my case that could have proved fatal. I suffer from a malformed heart chamber - one of the many genetic flaws passed to me by my mother.
Two years ago, I almost died in my sleep because of this flaw read my story here. I warn you, it is so scary that my friend, and editor, Julia asked me to change the names so as not to scare my friends. The story is fiction, the events were real.
