Chocolate - Myths about chocolate
Chocolate is probably the world's most favorite comfort food. Especially a woman's. So there is no doubt that this particular comfort food, like all the rest, is going to have its common myths and myth-conceptions. So why not take this time to clear up a few of those myths about our favorite comfort food.
Chocolate tends to play an important rule in most of our lives, especially if you eat it as a comfort food. So it's not really a surprise that there are so many myths about it. Because let's be honest, if chocolate was a boring, bland food, instead of one of the most delicious, richest and tastiest comfort food on earth, would we really care if there were myths surrounding it?
And you are a rare individual indeed if you don't like chocoalte. Unless, of course you are allergic to it. So let us clear up these myths right now!
Will you get acne if you eat chocoalte?
Now I'm sure at one point in your life you've heard your mother or your grandmother state: "If you eat all that chocolate you will get pimples on your face" But did we listen to them? I know I didn't.
But don't fret. There have been countless studies done on this myth. And it has been proven conclusively that chocolate will not cause you to break out with those annoying pimples. And in case you are wondering, no the sugar in milk chocolate doesn't cause acne either. Chocolate, in no way, contributes to acne.
Will chocolate cure cancer?
The answer to this is no. While there is such a thing as medicinal chocolate, and Theobromine (which is the main chemical ingredient) can be used to regulate Vasodilation and aid in urination, it's not a cure-all -- though wouldn't that be nice?
Is chocolate high in caffeine?
Nope not really. There are small amounts of caffeine in chocolate, but if you really want a boost eat some chocolate covered coffee beans!!!!!
