COCOA AND CHOLESTEROL

I DRINK COCOA IN PLACE OF TEA AND COFFEE. WILL THIS HAVE ANY EFFECT ON MY CHOLESTEROL ? I HAVE READ THAT COCOA CONTAINS CAFFEINE WHICH IN TURN IS BAD FOR ARTHRITUS. THANKS

Hi Karien
Cocoa butter and chocolate do not raise blood cholesterol. Milk chocolate or lower grade chocolate where a part of the total fat content comes from milk fat or various other types of fat, may affect the cholesterol level. It contains much less caffein than coke, coffee or tea.
