Has anyone read this article Really Long Link It is an article from the NZ news website called Stuff. Sounds too good to be true, right? Yes, probably. I can tell you that even though they do not mention how the study was done, but I can think of several things that could harm the accuracy of the results of this study. One, how are the researchers getting their data? Through food diaries from the participants? Food surveys? Actually observing the eating habits of people 24/7? The first two methods aren't the best because you have to rely on the memories of the participants and they may not remember what they have eaten. Also can you trust that they are telling the truth? The third method is far to time consuming and probably didn't happen. Its also possible that people may under or overestimate their chocolate intake. Have a look at this article and see what you think.
