Cream Cheese saves lives!

Jamie was telling us a story about a little girl who was unable to talk until she ate some cream cheese.... We all figured she was making it up...... Nope turns out to be a real story.

Read the whole story HERE


A child with a condition that left her mute has made an inspreadable breakthrough and spoken her first words – thanks to cream cheese.

Fields Taylor, three, suffers from GLUT1 deficiency, an incurable genetic disorder which affects her ability to speak.

But after eating a kilo of Philadelphia every week for three months, she said her first word: “Mum.”

GLUT1 deficiency is a rare condition which affects just 26 people in the UK.

It leaves the brain starved of energy because the body cannot transport enough glucose.

After taking more than a year to diagnose Fields, medical experts put her on a high-fat ketogenic diet, which forces the brain to use this as its energy source rather than glucose.
