Do you like chocolate? Do you like it very much? Does a piece of chocolate satisfy you or isn't it enough for you? Do you need a bar of chocolate when you feel depressed? Just one? Be careful - you may be addicted!

Chocolate contains small amounts of three drugs. When you get too much of any of the three drugs, your body becomes chemically dependent - addicted on the drug.

One of the drug is caffeine, which is also in coffee and tea. Caffeine is a stimulant and can also interfere with the way you absorb vitamins. Another drug in chocolate is also a mild stimulant. And the third drug causes your brain to produce a type of hormone that makes you feel happy. That is why you like chocolate so much!

In Britain, the average person eats nine kilos of chocolate a year. That's too much! And too much of any drugs is harmful.

So next time you unwrap the second, third or fourth bar of chocolate: watch out!!
