Why do we nose bleed when we eat too much of chocolate?

  1. Jun 8, 2009 #1
    Hi, i think this should be the appropriate forum.
    My teacher taught me about immune system and fever are bring about to increase the phagocytes action.

    But why eating chocolate in a large amount will result in nose bleed? I don't really get it.

    I've never heard of such a thing. Perhaps you have an allergy to chocolate? You should see your doctor if a particular food is consistently triggering nosebleeds.

    Too much chocolate is a non sequitur.
