Yes, it is true: I was curious about your question and found this report on NPR. it appears that cheese before bed can trigger vivid dreams, not nightmares. different types of cheese seem to trigger different types of dreams! it's facsinating, thanks for asking the question! http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=4851485
