Looking for evidence that chocolate is bad for the prostate, but only came across online sites saying that in younger men, drinking alcohol or consuming too much caffeine (especially coffee) can irritate the prostate and cause frequent urination (so, eliminating them from the diet may decrease prostatitis symptoms). Chocolate has caffeine. Other reported irritants include tobacco and spicy foods.
