Scientists Warn That Eating Too Much Chocolate Can Be Addictive


A new study has found that eating too much chocolate can be addictive and lead to health problems.

The study, published in the journal Frontiers in Psychiatry, looked at the effects of eating chocolate on a group of people with a history of addiction.

The participants were given a daily dose of either a placebo or a high-dose of chocolate for four weeks.

The results showed that the group who ate the high-dose of chocolate had higher levels of the chemical dopamine in their brains.

Dopamine is a chemical that is associated with pleasure and reward.

The study also found that the group who ate the high-dose of chocolate had higher levels of the stress hormone cortisol.

Cortisol is a hormone that is released in response to stress.

The researchers say that the results of the study show that eating too much chocolate can lead to addictive behaviour and health problems.

They advise that people should eat chocolate in moderation and be aware of the potential risks.


  1. I find this study to be very interesting. I have always loved chocolate and thought it was one of the few things that I could eat without any consequences. This study makes me realize that I need to be more mindful about how much chocolate I consume.

  2. I think this study is interesting and it makes me want to be more mindful of how much chocolate I’m eating. I love chocolate but I don’t want to get addicted to it or have health problems because of it.

  3. There are a lot of studies out there that show eating chocolate in moderation can have health benefits, so it’s important to take this new study with a grain of salt. That said, it’s definitely something to be aware of – too much of anything can be bad for you, and this includes chocolate. If you have a history of addiction, it’s best to err on the side of caution and avoid eating large amounts of chocolate. And if you’re struggling with stress or anxiety, cortisol levels can be increased by eating chocolate, so again moderation is key.

  4. I think this study is interesting and it makes sense that overeating chocolate could lead to addiction and health problems. I think it’s important to be aware of the risks and eat chocolate in moderation.
