Death by Chocolate?--not
No fair, no fair!!
In the continuing and ongoing revision of health directives by medical science, today's bulletin is that chocolate has been found to be non-hazardous to your health.
In a study conducted in--where else?--the chocolate-loving chocolate-producing Netherlands, it was found that older men who ate a third of a bar of chocolate a day had lowered blood pressure and a decreased risk of death.
You'd think this was good news--and for most people (especially older men in the Netherlands), it is. But not for me. Because, as I wrote here, I can't eat chocolate. And that's really sad, because I love it.
But to the rest of you: enjoy. Don't mind me, sitting in the corner, watching you all, tears slowly rolling down my face.
And maybe it's time to rename this dessert.
