Matt Milford... L2Logic pls kthxby!
1. Chocolate contains sugar
2. Brain runs on sugar
3. Therefore you agree : chocolate protects your brain.
OMGWTFBBQ: How on earth could you come to such a conclusion?
By this logic, you might as well consume sugar instead of chocolate or other goodies. I can assure you of this. You will not be more protected than any joe on the street from dementia.
Taken to the extreme and I grant you this is extreme, what you may find is you may develop all the complications of a high calorie diet - obesity, high insulin resistance maybe eventually diabetes et cetera.
You may say, "Ah, I forgot to mention a hidden premise". Fair enough then, what is it?
Could it be : whatever your brain runs on is neuroprotective?
Well think again: sugar is VITAL for brain survival, like 02. The issue in the article was does chocolate provide additional protection from events or pathology.
Consider this too: If I take out your pancreas and render you diabetic and you don't keep good sugar control ie your average blood sugar being higher than the average normal joe, what do you figure your odds are for cardiovascular events or strokes? You have MORE sugar in your system? Shouldn't that be better?
Plainly it is not this simple.
L2Logic. Go get a book and broaden your mind.
Wanna check up on what I wrote? Get any textbook on physiology and pathology.
Or trust me, I'm a Lvl 70 durid <--- definite argument from authority.
Lastly and unrelatedly, I will say this:
sugar and milk does not chocolate make.
Mars bars is chocolate? WTF???? Since when?
Mars bars = Milky bars = FTL
Lindt Dark Chocolate FTW
