It is significant for adults and children to know the scientific fact about chocolate. Children are habitually denied this treat because of the myths that enclose it. It has been said that chocolate could cause tooth decay and acne and that it has no nutritional value. Most of the bad effects of eating chocolate have been overstated or even are false. For example, chocolate is not very high in caffeine.
A typical 1.4-ounce chocolate
bar has the corresponding amount of caffeine found in one
cup of decaffeinated coffee. (Coe, 1996) Chocolate has not
been confirmed to cause cavities or tooth decay. Dentists
agree that the cavity- causing possible of food is not necessarily
related to sugar content, but rather to how frequently a food
is eaten, the sequence of foods eaten and the amount of time
the food left overs in the mouth. Chocolate often has been
linked with hyperactivity particularly in children.
