Summary:
With approximately 380 known chemicals, scientists are still struggling to learn how chocolate affects our brains. We do know that it mimics the way our brains react to marijuana, amphetamines, and the drug we call "love"! How did this little pod from a little tree become a global obsession? Enjoyed as a drink by the Mayans and Aztecs, it was Europeans who added sugar. But in 1847, chocolate became edible as well as drinkable and Milton S. Hershey made it popular in the US. And during WWII, the chocolate bar became an internationally recognized American symbol. GIs used chocolate bars as barter, and the little candies known as M&Ms became a favorite. Recent studies show health benefits to chocolate, especially dark chocolate that contains some of the same antioxidant potential as red wine. So now you can have your chocolate and eat it, too!
