Chocolate: Good or Bad

Chocolate is actually a very ancient food source, used in the tropical rainforests of the American continents as a hot beverage derived from the seeds of the cacao tree. Both the Maya and the Aztecs of Central America were some of the earliest civilizations to make note of their chocolate consumption. Rather than going for the sweet treat that is loved and embraced by the modern world, these ancient peoples would mix ground up cacao seeds with spicy seasonings to make a frothy, warm drink. The story of how chocolate went from this random beginning to being the monumental sweet of today is a long one, but its multiple uses and presence all over the world is far more interesting. Lately people having been trying to figure out if this sinful treat is good or bad for you in a health sense. The truth is that it is probably a little of both, but many individuals like to take sides on the debate to start their own pro-chocolate or anti-chocolate factions. The choice is ultimately up to you!

Negative Health Effects of Chocolate

What’s so bad about chocolate? Well, like most foods it is not exactly the chocolate itself that causes the problems but the source of the chocolate and of course its quantities. Theobromine is the bitter yet intense alkaloid that is found in the cacao plant (and a few others such as the cola nut) which is similar in its effects to that of caffeine. While humans can process theobromine, we know that some animals do not have sufficient capacity to metabolize it, making chocolate quite toxic to these select creatures. This should be cue enough for mankind to note that perhaps chocolate might not be “all that.”

We all know how important air is for our life. However today we will focus on the other beneficial part of air and that is energy that is obtained by moving air. The motion results from the heating and cooling of the Earth; thus, wind energy is an indirect form of Solar Energy.We are more in need of renewable sources of energy for our survival and what can be best other than wind energy. Wind energy is one of the oldest forms of energy used to supplement human muscle. The conversion of wind energy to various other useful forms, like electricity, is known as wind power. Wind energy is converted into these forms using wind turbines. There are wind power plants, or wind farms which are clusters of wind machines used to produce electricity. A wind farm usually has dozens of wind machines scattered over a large area.
