7 Facts & Myths About Chocolate (Infographic)

But, would a true food villain have this many health benefits?

dark chocolate is amazing.. i can tolerate milk chocolate, and I detest white chocolate. I rarely eat any of it, since it hurts my teeth (anything sweet does.. darn enamel)... I have only ever had one cavity bc im really weird about my teeth, but my sensitive enamel prevents me from enjoying chocolate (and cold foods)
