Chocolate: is it a food or a drug? Yes, seriously. I read a few studies on that topic. My conclusion is: who cares, as long as you eat the pure chocolate with no additives and no dairy. Yes, I admit I can get chocolate cravings, and, as real as they are, it doesn’t mean chocolate is a drug. But my hormonal level is out of balance, so says one of the studies.
