Chocolate and Women

Now husbands have a reason to have mixed feelings about their wives cheating on all these low carbohydrate diets.

Hat tip to Rush Limbaugh for bringing this story about the link between the desire for chocolate and the desire for sex in women to our attention. Not only is this link not surprising (as Rush pointed out, men have known this for centuries--why else chocolate for Valentine’s day and dates?) but is anyone really surprised that the researchers conducting the study were Italian?

But before young men start flocking to the chocolate shop, they should remember that nature is a cruel teacher. Another study mentioned in the story showed a link between HPV (human papilloma virus) and prostrate cancer in men. In other words, men who exercised their libidos too much in their younger years and were, thereby exposed to the the virus that has long been linked to cervical cancer in women, and with just as tragic results.

The lesson, guys? Get married, stay faithful, and (to make that easier) buy chocolate. Worth a read, and a mug. Hot chocolate, anyone?!

Thanks, Julie. I think some chocolates just may be in order for my wife. I need all the help I can get!!!

For future reference, cervical cancer is VERY treatable if caught in the early stages.

I was the data manager and deputy administrator for PA’s Breast and Cervical Cancer program. Cervical cancer is one of the forms we have almost totally beaten.

Justa s an FYI, since the last sentence seemed so dire.
