im not a chocolate fan, but a friend told me that during the times when he feels low or when he is really angry he eats chocolate. it makes him calm. is that true? if eating chocolate can calm people is that the reason why a lot of people are suffuring from diabetes. can chocolate can really help calming?

I am a chocolate fan myself, but I haven't had it for a very long time, but when I was in my twenties( long time ago!) I had to eat it every day, I guess it is true what they say that it calms you down and makes you happy, and when I was younger I was mad or sad constantly, thank God at my age I don't need it anymore! once in a blue moon I wouldn't mind.

Yes. I read about it in a magazine. It said that chocolate is actually good because it makes your body produce endorfins, which make you either happy or calm. It also claimed that its a myth that chocolate causes acne on some people.
