Chocolate As A Mood Stabilizer

Does chocolate affect our mood?


Okay, I shared a few 2010 studies on Chocolate Myth post.  Yes, chocolate and depression connections continue to be studied.  The last one I read was titled: "Too much chocolate can make men depressed, study finds" published in the UK.
