Poison Dressed as an Easter Bunny

With the Easter holiday fast approaching, tons of chocolate will soon be consumed. Dr. Dave Woynarowski is asked what the difference is between white, dark and milk chocolate and which is healthier for you.

(PRWEB) March 31, 2009 -- Every year at this time thousands of tons of chocolate Easter Bunnies are unleashed on the world; given as sweet treats for children, and the child in all of us. Some are white chocolate, some are milk chocolate and a few are dark chocolate but they all have one thing in common.

In spite of the innocent and well meaning feelings and traditions behind them, they are basically poisonous to the human body. At least that is the position taken by noted anti-aging expert Dr. Dave Woynarowski MD.

"Chocolates have been changed so much from their original very healthy form into the worst possible combination of highly-refined and man-made ingredients. Our bodies basically have to detoxify from them and treat them like poison!"

While this may seem a harsh judgment of a little harmless looking bunny, Dr. Woynarowski goes on to make the following points:

1) As a treat, the traditional Chocolate Easter bunny is very high in calories and almost completely devoid of nutritional value.
2) The white chocolate versions are even worse. White chocolate is basically the leftovers from making dark chocolate and has no real chocolate in it!
3) Unless the chocolate that goes into your bunny is high in Cacao content, low in fat and sweetened naturally, you are giving and getting a product loaded with refined sugar, no measurable antioxidant value and of course lots of man-made hydrogenated fats.

So what if we want to give a healthier treat? Can we still give chocolates?

"Sure," says Woynarowski. "Just look for a chocolate that has the following characteristics:

A) A high Cacao content; above 65% is best.
B) Cold processed manufacturing rather than traditional manufacturing which involves higher heat and removes the natural anti-oxidant power of chocolates.
C) Chocolates should be sweetened with natural sweeteners like organic cane sugar and Agave syrup, both of which are far less refined and cause far less sugar/insulin spikes in the body.
D) The additional of additional antioxidant flavorings like Acai berry among others to give the chocolate an even healthier outlook."

While you may not find this kind of chocolate in the shape of a bunny, you will love the taste and so will anyone you give it too.

"People who have tried the healthier version of chocolate, love its deep rich flavor. And they love knowing they are helping their bodies instead of causing a world of hurt!
