Many people joke about being psychologically addicted to
chocolate, unaware that in reality, there is indeed a
physiological foundation for their addiction.
Milk chocolate is called a “comfort food” for good reason.
Regular users of milk chocolate become addicts and slaves
to casomorphin, a naturally occurring milk opiate that is
structurally similar to morphine.
This is a part of Mother Nature’s infinitely wondrous plan,
to make nursing more than pleasurable. Casomorphin is
addictive. That’s why weaning is such a difficult process
for any species of mammal. Human folly is the ability to
concentrate milk into so-called comfort foods and further
create addicts to that naturally occurring milk opiate.
Milk chocolate is the weakness of American dieters. The
first ingredient is sugar. The second ingredient is milk.
The third ingredient is the cocoa bean. Milk chocolate is
brown cheese with sugar.
With each bit of chocolate that melts in your mouth, you
also deliver allergenic proteins and bovine growth hormones
to your cells.
Four pounds of milk are condensed and concentrated to
produce one pound of milk chocolate. What becomes
concentrated? Female bovine hormones containing chemical
messages instructing mammary tissues to grow. Allergenic
proteins creating human histamines, then mucus,
10-12 hours after ingestion.
Tootsie rolls and fudge result in creamy gooey chocolate
sludge. You are what you eat. The essence of chocolate passes
through the human gastrointestinal tract, resulting in
uncomfortably messy bowel movements.
Do yourself and your loved ones a favor. Skip the candy
bars. Wean yourself from milk chocolate. Buy boxes of
raisins, dates, and dried apricots. These preserved fruits
contain vitamins, minerals, fiber, and bioflavinoids. They
neither melt to become a mess in your hands nor your soul.
