Chocolate: Friend or Foe?

Chocolate has been getting a lot of good press lately.

A study of 931 adults seems to rain on the idea that “chocolate improves mood”. This University of California-San Diego research has found that people who are depressed are more likely to eat chocolate, and the more depressed they are, the more chocolate they eat. The authors say they cannot yet determine which direction the cause-and-effect arrow is pointing.

PositiveTip: Chocolate may be a rich source of some antioxidants, but it also is very high in sugar and fat. Medicinal consumption should wait until more evidence is available.
