Chocolate – eat or not to eat
Children love chocolate. Some of us may even have stolen chocolate from the fridge and been caught by our parents. Adults often warn children against eating chocolate, saying it contains too much fat and leads to obesity. I agree that chocolate has a high calorie content and can be addictive, but it’s not all bad. It has a long history, dating back to Mayan times. People in South America and Europe also used cocoa - the main ingredient in chocolate – to treat diarrhoea.
Modern studies have found that small amounts of dark chocolate can reduce the possibility of a heart attack. Researchers are looking into the role chocolate could play in fighting cancer, boosting the immune system and enhancing memory. Chocolate is also a“comfort food”that can help relieve the stress of city life. Why not take a break and drink a cup of hot chocolate?
Like Forrest Gump said:“Life is like a box of chocolate. You never know what you are going to get. ”
