Are you Chocoholic?

Abaixo, temos o título de um texto em inglês. Observe e responda as 4 questões utilizando papel e caneta.

Are you Chocoholic?

1 - Sobre o que será o texto? _______________________________________________
2 - A quem ele se dirige? _________________________________________________
3 - Você acha que o chocolate pode fazer mal a saúde? _____________________________
4 - Formule hipóteses sobre o assunto. ________________________________________

Do you like chocolate? Do you like it very much? Does a piece of chocolate satisfy you or isn't it enough?
Do you need a bar of chocolate when you fell depressed? Just one? Be careful - you may be addicted!

Chocolate contains small amounts of three drugs. When you get too much of any of the three, your body becomes chemically dependent - addicted - on the drug.

One of the drugs is caffeine, which is also in coffee and tea. Caffeine is a stimulant, and can also interfere with the way you absorb vitamins. Another drug in chocolate is also a mild stimulant. The third drug causes your brain to produce a type of hormone that makes you feel happy. That's why you like it so much!

In Britain, the average person eats nine kilos of chocolate for year. That's too much! And too much of any drug is harmful. So next time you unwrap the third or fourth chocolate bar of the day, watch out!
