Chocolate is good for you! 2

Further to my previous post today's news as the headline "Chocolate lovers 'are more depressive', say experts " or, as they said on the radio "Chocolate Causes Depression." Of course if you read the full article it says nothing of the sort only that people who eat a bar of chocolate or so a week have a slightly higher depression score.

However I stand by my original post for 2 reasons:

  1. They research admits it doesn't know if it is cause or effect, people who are depressed may eat chocolate as a mood enhancer.
  2. I was only talking about high cocoa chocolate and not the the mass produced bars that make up the majority of the western chocolate consumption.

Here is the link to the article on the BBC News site as it is worth a read:
