Urologist and surgeon Mark Gadziyan warned the Russians that it is dangerous to eat chocolate often against the background of diseases of the genitourinary system. The doctor’s words are quoted by Gazeta.Ru.

According to the expert, melamine is often included in milk chocolate. However, the remains of this substance are often found in kidney stones. The doctor referred to various expert reports that had already confirmed the dangers of such an ingredient.

“In itself, eating chocolate increases blood fat levels and increases urinary calcium and oxalate levels. It is the excess of the latter that provokes the development of urolithiasis, ”Gadziyan emphasized.

The doctor also said that chocolate causes problems with teeth and headaches.
