Champagne n choclat: In small amounts (1 standard glass wine/beer etc/day), both alchol and chocolate have been associated with some positive health effects for some, but too much alcohol will damage your kidneys, liver, heart, esophogus n more. Too much choclate will also cause weight gain and the associated health risks. Serious health consequences from alcohol is probably much more common - than chocolate overdo.
