While tasty and well-liked, chocolate should not often be consumed by the adam. In contrast to women who, if eating dark chocolate can relieve stress, men will actually become depressed when most consumption.
The reason why men can become depressed, is because of the sugar content found in chocolate products. Men are at risk of mood disorders if the consumption of sugar per day is more than 67 grams.
The research team from University College London’s Institute of Epidemiology and Health, chaired by Dr Anika Knuppel studied it.
Reported by the Telegraph page, approximately 7,000 civil servants were included in the study that took place in the period 1983-2013. They are divided into three groups, based on their daily consumption of sugar.
The results of data analysis from scientists, the effect of the amount of sugar consumption is not only bad for women but also for men.
Men who consumed more than 67 grams of sugar, 23 percent greater risk of mental disorders such as depression and anxiety.
The results of a study published in the journal Scientific Reports also wrote that the effect was not only psychologically but also physically leading to health problems.
“The high sugar diet has a lot of influence on our health,” says Knuppel.
In the short term after eating sweet foods, indeed someone will feel happy. But then if more and more sugar is consumed will result in the opposite.
“The intake of foods high in sugar tends to have an adverse impact on mental health in the long term,” he explained.
Therefore, the consumption of foods should be reduced and replaced with natural foods.
