Do you suffer from chronic headaches? Have you been told to avoid chocolate by friends or doctors? A study(1) challenges the commonly held belief that chocolate triggers headaches. The double-blind study compared chocolate and carob samples in 63 women with chronic headaches, including migraines, tension-type, or combined headache sufferers. The study found that chocolate was not more likely to provoke headaches than carob in any of the headache diagnostic groups. This result was independent of subjects' beliefs regarding the role of chocolate in triggering headaches, and it did not vary based on the type of headache or other vasoactive amine-containing foods consumed.
