Everyone loves chocolate – that indulgent luxury that melts in your mouth releasing a flavour sensation.
Chocolate can be a medicine in the sense that it can lift your spirits or be a reward for some endeavour or for a sharing moment or just an indulgence.
But it does have the downside of having a lot of calories. A high percentage of any chocolate you buy is fat and most chocolate has a great deal of added sugar to soften the natural bitterness of chocolate and you end up with something highly desirable but far from being a health food.
The Fightback Ninja has never seen scams that involve chocolate so maybe this is the first.
“Southern Doctor Invents Chocolate Gut Remedy”.
If you have digestive problems – just stuff your face with chocolate. Might be fun but isn’t going to cure any medical problems.
The message continues talking about a recipe you must follow to get the benefits and that chocolate may be the health food of the 21st Century.
In order to convince you it’s based on proven facts, the message claims “Studies from places like Harvard and John Hopkins now confirm …”. Either a study is from Harvard or it isn’t “places like” means nothing.
The message is a simple scam but unusual to use chocolate as the bait.
Chocolate is very nice but fattening and does not cure any medical problems with your digestion.
