Chocolate Mythology

There is really nothing wrong with chocolate. In fact, almost all of us love this yummy treat but many suffer unnecessary guilt when consuming it because of some beliefs about its adverse effect on health.

Studies have revealed that chocolate has many interesting characteristics and if you have been following my posts, I have written several articles about how chocolate cab be beneficial to our health.

Here are some myths and facts to set the records straight.

Whatever they say about chocolate, I will never stop eating it, especially the dark variety. I can do away with any other kind of candy but not chocolate!
