Revealing the Truth about Chocolates
by: Greg Pierce

Chocolate is of the food that many of us enjoy. People from all around the world love this treat because of its sweet, unique and creamy taste. Children are especially fond of it and adults, especially men, love to give them as gifts to the most important women in their lives. But even as chocolate seems to be a favorite treat regardless of gender, age or race, it falls victim to many misconceptions.

But not all of these myths are true and some have been busted. Below are the few myths that have been busted.

Myth # 1 – Chocolates cause zits.

The truth is, chocolate itself does not cause acne. The real culprit is the milk that is mixed with it. In fact, pure chocolates, which may taste bitter, contain high-level of antioxidants which will help make your skin look and feel better and healthier.

Myth # 2 – Chocolates cause tooth cavities.

This myth, thankfully is just a myth. Truth is, while chocolates contain fermentable carbohydrates, which causes cavity, the amount in a regular chocolate bar is not enough to cause tooth damage because the cocoa butter in chocolate itself that the teeth. Chocolates may also be high in sugar, but the time it takes for the chocolate to melt inside your mouth is too short to have bacteria attacking your teeth.

Myth # 3 – Chocolates cause heart disease.

Pure chocolates are not factors that facilitate heart disease. In fact, the high level of cocoa butter in the chocolate can reduce the levels of cholesterol. An additional thing, pure chocolates also contain vitamins like iron, potassium, magnesium and calcium. They all help in the proper functioning of muscles, joints and nerves.

Myth # 4 – Eating chocolates cause insomnia.

It has been thought that chocolates have high levels of caffeine which of course can cause insomnia but this is actually false. One cup of hot cocoa contains only 5 mg of the stimulant while a cup of coffee contains about 130 to 200 milligrams.

Myth # 5 - Chocolates may cause cancer.

This is so not true, in fact, dark chocolates are a great source of antioxidants which can protect against cell damage. We expose ourselves daily to different free radicals which are harmful for our cells. However, with antioxidants which can be found in chocolates, the effect is lowered.
