This interesting mid-18th century treatise on foods contains substantial information on the medicinal uses of chocolate. According to the text, it helps with digestion and recovers "decay'd strength." In one anecdote, an infertile woman treated with chocolate went on to bear several children. Chocolate is also recommended for old people (especially in the winter). The author does caution that chocolate "hinders people to sleep." In recompense, it "promotes venery" (sexual indulgence)
