Does chocolate have a negative effect on people undergoing cancer treatment?

A moderate consumption of chocolate has no negative effect on the health of patients undergoing cancer treatment. Chocolate, preferably dark or high in cocoa (minimum 70%), can be included in a balanced diet, in moderate quantities.


We can include chocolate consumption as part of a healthy and balanced diet. Scientific evidence justifies a moderate consumption of dark chocolate (>70% cocoa), two or three times a week without exceeding 50 g per week.
