The chocolate battle of the sexes
In the battle of the sexes, one sex loves chocolate the most: Women.
But not by that much. In a recent study it was found that 91 per cent of women love eating chocolate as opposed to 87 per cent of men. But while men like the taste of chocolate as a treat, it has been widely reported over decades of research that women ‘love’ eating chocolate. Why is this?
Studies have shown that it is the difference of female and male brains that the female’s cyclic rise and fall of hormones such as oestrogen and progesterone may trigger a craving for chocolate. Another reason why women crave chocolate more may be due to its rich magnesium content.
