Wired News : “Kochhar compared the blood and urine of those 11 men, who he jokingly called ‘weird’ for their indifference to chocolate, to 11 similar men who ate chocolate daily. They were all healthy, not obese, and were fed the same food for five days.”
I had to laugh. it took the researchers a year to find 11 men who do not eat chocolate so that they could be the control group. That’s how much we like chocolate…and how much we have bacteria!!! The research is fascinating and is not as yet conclusive because there are other things to rule out. The fact they are looking at intestinal bacteria and how it affects what you eat tends to suggest that at some stage we will be able to do things for people with anorexia, poor digestion…and chocolate cravings!
