Doctor Komorowski said, can chocolate be a bad influence on health and is it worth it to give children
Ukrainian pediatrician Eugene Komorowski said, can chocolate affect the absorption of calcium by the body, which is especially important for children’s health.
The doctor wrote a reader, who believes that the chocolate calcium in children is poorly absorbed and therefore chocolate children should not be given:
“I read in a magazine that supposedly chocolate slows the absorption of calcium, so it should not be combined with dairy products. But what about milk chocolate? He was supposed to be pure evil)) Is it true that chocolate is so prevents the absorption of calcium? It turns out, it is necessary to prevent, especially for children?”, writes a reader.
According to Komarovsky, chocolate really can affect the absorption of calcium. The fact that in the chocolate, or rather cocoa beans, contains oxalates. And oxalates — salts of oxalic acid, which together with calcium to form the insoluble compound calcium oxalate, which, of course, will not absorbed.
Carefully, a new weather front: the weatherman said the forecast for cold
“Nevertheless, I want to reassure you — the amount of oxalates in chocolate are so low that fundamentally and significantly affect the absorption of calcium chocolate doesn’t. Especially when it comes to milk chocolate, which you suspect to be evil, the cocoa content in it very little,” replied the doctor.
According to him, the harmfulness and risk of chocolate is somewhat different: the sugar in milk chocolate quite a lot, stimulates urination, and calcium is lost this way — just goes with the urine. So the main dangers of chocolate it contained sugar, not cocoa beans.
