Chocolate And Red Wine Are Still Bad For You

Don’t believe the hype

Warning: this article contains lots of delicious pictures. Try and focus on the words as well

Everyone wants chocolate to be healthy. This is a universal truth. We sit and stare at the rich blocks of a bar of Cadbury’s and want nothing more than to sink our teeth into its sumptuous curves. But we’ve all heard the message, seen the writing on the wall: chocolate is a calorie-heavy treat.

Chocolate is bad for you.

But what if it wasn’t? What if we could chow down on that most delightful of snacks without fear of the corresponding choco-guilt? And what if this extended to the most delightful of beverages, red wine?

This is the promise that headlines the world over have been selling. It happens at least once a year — we find a study that tells us these things are good for us, and despite our misgivings we happily sign up to the new truth.

Because, deep down, we want chocolate to be good for us. Red wine, too. It’s not. We just wish it was.

These articles are all happily discussing a new breathtaking discovery: the chemical resveratrol.

If you’ve ever read a story or seen a news headline about red wine and chocolate being good for you, chances are they have been talking about a resveratrol study. It is a naturally-occurring chemical that is found in high concentrations in these delightful foods, as well as in the skin of blueberries and some other sources.

Right at the outset I’m going to say: this study is completely worthless as an indication of how red wine or chocolate is going to affect your body. Totally useless.

What the researchers basically did was create an artificial substance they called a “resveralogue”, which is a chemical similar in structure and action to resveratrol, and squirt it on some cells in petri dishes. So a) this is not the substance you find in red wine or chocolate, and b) they didn’t test anything on people, it was cells in petri dishes.

The most cursory glance at the study would’ve revealed that this research has nothing whatsoever to do with red wine or chocolate, both of which we know are bad for you. Any journalist who’d taken a look at the study would’ve immediately known that it was incredibly preliminary research.

This is not hard.

Maybe in 30 years’ time, there will be a drug produced from this research. But the current state is enormous speculation based on lab-bench data.

Cheer up. Red wine is still delicious

Ultimately, this isn’t a new story. I wrote something similar about resveratrol almost a year ago to date. We are always going to want rosy tales about how wine and chocolate are good for us, because it would be so lovely if they were, wouldn’t it?

Pictured: delicious. Bad for you, but delicious

We will always be looking for a reason to eat chocolate. It is one of life’s greatest pleasures. Sadly, it will also clog your arteries and rot your teeth.

Eat in moderation. Drink in moderation. There is no reason to believe that red wine or chocolate are anything other than enjoyable vices.

And next time a story breaks about how they might save your life?

Don’t believe the hype.

It’s probably nonsense anyway.
