Myth No.1

Chocolate creates a drug-like addiction. Not so long ago, South American scientists learned that chocolate contains substances that are capable of causing addiction, just like marijuana.

But it is difficult enough to become addicted to chocolate. In order to do this, you need to eat eleven kilograms of it in one sitting.

Myth No.2

Some nutritionists say that the chocolate diet is optimal. Its creators say that it is enough to have five cups of coffee a day with the addition of fat-free milk, and eighty grams of bitter chocolate, to lose weight by about five to seven kilograms in a week. But it is far from that. The chocolate diet, as well as the mono diet in general, limits the intake of necessary substances in our bodies.

Myth No.3

Chocolate is harmful to the teeth. This is not entirely true. The substances in chocolate envelop teeth and protect the enamel from destruction. It is necessary to emphasize that the sugar contained in chocolate can be harmful to people suffering from diabetes. Therefore, it is better for them to choose special types of chocolate, which have xylitol or sorbitol.

Myth No.4

Chocolate causes allergies. This is also not true. The rash is not caused by the chocolate itself. It appears in an allergic reaction to various additives that are used in the manufacture of chocolate. Most allergies occur to the milk contained in milk chocolate, and also to various fruits, nuts and other fillers.

Eat chocolate with pleasure!
