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.
 
...we do? I guess I learned something today..

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.
