Transcript of Negative Side Effects of Chocolate

Before I tell you the effects of chocolate I want to tell you that dark chocolate can be good for your body but consuming too much can have many bad health effects!
Diabetes and Cavities
One milk chocolate bar has 26 grams of carbohydrates and 1 ounce of dark chocolate has 17 grams, most of which is from sugars or refined carbohydrates. Refined carbohydrates can cause spikes in your blood sugar and may lead to diabetes. The excess sugar may also send you to the dentist more often than you’d like with tooth decay and cavities.
Gastroesophageal Reflux
Gastroesophageal reflux is a condition in which the stomach contents come back up into your esophagus, resulting an heartburn. Chocolate causes your lower esophageal sphincter to relax, which enables the stomach contents to travel back upward, giving you that burning feeling behind your chest. The National Digestive Diseases Information Clearing house recommends that you avoid chocolate to help control the reflux.
Effects of Caffeine
Caffeine stimulates your central nervous system, which is a why a piece of chocolate may perk you up when the workday starts to drag, but caffeine has no nutritional value. If you eat too many caffeine-containing foods such as chocolate, you may experience rapid heartbeat, anxiety, depression, restlessness, sleep problems, nausea and vomiting, according to Medline Plus. Dark chocolate contains more caffeine than milk chocolate.
Dark Chocolate
If you only eat occasionally to satisfy a craving, that is ok, but eating too much could have really bad effects on your health. It doesn’t take much dark chocolate to start creating problems for your health. Just a small amount contains enough fat, calories and sugar to make your body react in many bad ways.
Weight

Gain and Heart Disease
One bar of milk chocolate that has 1.55 ounces or 44 grams, contains 235 calories, 13 grams of fat, 8 of which come from saturated fat, and 221 grams of sugar. One ounce of dark chocolate, or 28.35 grams, contains 156 calories, 9 grams of fat, 5 from saturated fat, and 13 grams of sugar. Saturated fat elevates blood cholesterol, which puts you at risk for heart disease and stroke. The added sugar in chocolate has no nutritional value, which can cause weight gain and heart disease, according to the American Heart Association. If you’re going to indulge in chocolate, Alice Lichtenstein, a professor at Tufts University recommends that you cut out other treats on that day or that you walk an additional 30 minutes to prevent the additional calories you’re getting.
