Study. Contrary to popular belief, chocolate does not fight against depression! A myth collapses.
The chocolate is not a good antidepressant. And it is the science says. Indeed, according to a study published in Health Psychology, the “comfort foods” are irrelevant to our moral!
100 people were tested to arrive at this conclusion. At the end of a broadcast of a film “depressing”, they had the task of selecting foods that “help people feel better when they don’t have the moral.” Then they were separated into 4 groups: the first was able to eat the food that lifts their spirits, the second ate food they considered good but not especially comforting (almonds, peanuts, popcorn). The third received only a single cereal bar and the latter had nothing at all. So obviously the chocolate came in first with 26% of the vote ahead of ice (18%) and cookies (16%), scientists have shown that it actually had no impact.
After analysis, they explained that with time all participants have found the moral without the intervention of the food. “It’s been the same regardless of the type of food ingested and even if they had not eaten anything. Negative emotions dissipate naturally with the passing of time but a majority of people mistakenly attribute this natural process to food “observes Traci Mann, Director of Research. The chocolate is doing nothing there! And heck.
In conclusion, the moral of all participants improved whether they ate or not! The effects would be only psychological. “The anti-depression virtues we give chocolate are simply the way we feel guilty when we fall for foods deemed unhealthy,” said Traci Mann.
The antidepressant myth is no longer!
