I'm sharing my CHOCOLATE!
There are few foods that I feel as passionate about .... okay.. beyond passion..I love Chocolate!!!
The "sweetness" of most candies or desserts....is tempting.. but chocolate calls my name.
-- after all, I don't think many people crave caramel, whipped cream,or bubblgum!
But CHOCOLATE.. it's well... different... when I think about it.... chocolate evokes a pleasurable response. and now with the following article... I have found that I must eat more... because my
Memory and Alertness... is not quite up to par... !
A symposium at the 2007 American Association for the Advancement of Science - hyped as a potentially "mind-altering experience" - presented evidence that chocolate consumption can be good for the brain. Experiments with chocolate-fed mice suggest that flavanol-rich cocoa stimulates neurovascular activity, enhancing memory and alertness.
( I BET THOSE MICE WERE HAPPY)
