SURVEY: Chocolate May Be a "Gateway Drug"

A recent survey (with 2,400+ respondents) found that chocolate may be a "Gateway Drug" which leads to difficulty controlling consumption of other foods.  Compared to any other treat, participants troubled by chocolate were MUCH more likely to report a multitude of food difficulties.  Detailed psychological differences between chocolate lovers and others were also found.  Dr. Livingston does NOT recommend most people give up chocolate!   For more info, read the full release (or MS-Word version)
