Do You Need More Reasons to Eat Dark Chocolate?

If so, then this article from Consumer Underground might give you not 22 but 29 reasons to do so. Sisters and Brothers, let just look at a few of these reasons together then I urge you to think about the others on your own.

First the article lists 7 reason that deal with aging. Aging is a big issue in our modern western world but is it an issue for the right reasons? This list does not go into what your Chocolate Priestess thinks are superficial reasons but instead a lot of basic body building block reasons such as cell function and various systems we have in our bodies. Therefore, whether or not these reasons are proved, they at least are not superficial.

The second part of the article discusses 22 advantages to eating dark chocolate daily. The only problem here that I see in terms of the benefits is that no where does it give specifics.

These are the questions I want answered:

How dark should this dark chocolate be?

What should or should not be added to it?

How much of the chocolate is it necessary or healthy to consume?

How long does it take for these benefits to demonstrate themselves?

Does it work the same in all people or are there factors that increase or decrease benefits?

Are there any possible negative side effects?

If any study out there can answer these questions and I can find it, I will share it with you, Sisters and Brothers. Until then remember to use chocolate in moderation and with an eye toward physical, emotional, and spiritual health.

Sisters and Brothers, may you too take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.
