Dark Chocolate Health Claims

This article from China talks about the health benefits of dark chocolate.

Sisters and Brothers, we all heard these claims time and time again. Whether or not they are true, we also need to remember that just because something is natural, just because something is healthy in one quantity does not make it healthy for everyone nor in large amounts.

Our journey requires focus and moderation even of the darkest and potentially most healthy chocolate. Telling yourself that it is acceptable to eat large quantities of anything risks undoing all the benefits, even water can be consumed in unhealthy amounts after all and the bulk of our bodies are made of it.

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