Are you a chocoholic? Yes? And you're not worrying about high blood-sugar levels and possibly obesity? No? Well someone surely is getting very very worried!!!
Dr David Walker, a family GP from Airdie Lanarkshire, who is also a trained food scientist and nutritionist, is of the opinion that chocolate should be taxed in the same way as alcohol to control Britain's obesity epidemic. In his address at a medical conference, Dr Walker stated that chocolate used to be a treat, but has become a harmful addiction, causing weight problems, diabetes, high blood pressure and back pain. He went on to say that consumers are often eating more than half a day's worth of calories when they polish off a bag of chocolates in front of the television. Dr David Walker claimed that obesity is such a mushrooming problem that Britain is heading the same way as the United States. Chocolate is being seen as a major player also in the medical condition of type-two diabetes.
A motion calling for the introduction of a chocolate tax was defeated by only two votes by doctors at the British Medical Association (BMA) conference.
Surely a tax is not going to solve your problem of expanding waistline and other high risk conditions, but the message that doctors all over the world are sending is a serious one. Let’s not ignore it!
“What am I to do? I just can’t help eating a 225g bag of chocolate sweets containing almost 1,200 calories, more than half the recommended daily calorie intake, while watching television.”

Before stocking up on your favorite cocoa-containing food or drink, keep in mind that most high-quality chocolate contains a significant amount of saturated fat and quite a few calories. Even if chocolate is confirmed to have significant health benefits by some researchers, the benefits could be cancelled out by eating too much.
Chocolate is both a blessing and a curse for men, women and children - it's a treat that adds pleasure to life, but it can also wreak havoc on one’s health and well-being.
