Dark Chocolate Side Effects: Who does not like to eat dark chocolate. Most of the people like to taste it and consider it healthy for health. Many women also consume it to get rid of period pain, as it works to keep their mood good and provide relief from pain to some extent. However, it is important to keep one thing in mind here that excessive consumption of anything can also cause many damages to the body. People may consider dark chocolate to be good and healthy, but eating too much of it can cause many health problems.
The question often arises in the mind of some people whether dark chocolate is really as healthy as it is said about it. Dr. Sudhir Kumar of Apollo Hospital, Hyderabad has given many ‘dark side effects’ of dark chocolate. According to them, dark chocolate works to harm our health. Dr. Sudhir said that dark chocolate is popular because people consider it to be a good source of antioxidants and low in sugar. However, there are many disadvantages of eating it as well.
Pregnant women are at risk from this!
The doctor told via Twitter that according to research, some dark chocolates contain lead and cadmium. These are two such heavy metals, which are associated with different types of health problems. He said that consuming less heavy metals daily can also cause many types of physical problems. Its risk is even higher in pregnant women and young children. This is because metals cause problems related to the development of the body. They can also badly affect the development of the brain and can lead to the birth of children with low IQ.
Many problems can arise in the body
The doctor warned that excessive lead intake in adults can cause nervous system problems, high blood pressure, suppression of the immune system, kidney damage and problems related to reproduction. Dr. Sudhir Kumar suggested that we can eat dark chocolate with low lead or cadmium content and can go with milk chocolate, which has less heavy metals. The doctor said that it would be better to consume dark chocolate with less cocoa content.
