Valentine’s Day is a holiday that should be focused around love and relationships, but it’s a booming business for the chocolate industry. Companies such as Russell Stover, Hershey’s, Godiva, and Ghirardelli thrive on this holiday by releasing assorted chocolate boxes or increasing the cost of their goods because they know the demand will be high. Some people may prefer not even receiving chocolates as they don’t want to commit to eating something so unhealthy. If you’re in that situation, grab that box of chocolates and tell them these reasons on why it’s not so unhealthy to dive into them.
A study from Japan showed that cocoa beans actually try to stop bacteria in tooth decay. Of course, it’s still advised to brush your teeth shortly after enjoying chocolate, as it is with any food.
Despite there being multiple studies on the issue, there is no scientific correlation between children eating chocolate and jumping off the walls. Instead, the reason why kids act crazy is chocolate is generally served more at special events, in which the situation causes kids to be nuts.
