Dear Sirs,
Could you please tell me if chocolate milk is good for you??? This is a
serious question, my sister  and I are having a disagreement on the
subject.
Thank You,

Chocolate milk has been known to cause death (proximal cause: hyperataxia
of the gall bladder) in lab rats with doses as small as 2L per day per
0.01kg of rat mass. On the other hand, chocolate milk has been known to
invigorate lab *mice* when administered intravenously (directly, without
titration at all) and even extends their life span to 15 or 20 years, or
even longer. BLRI (the Bovine Lactal Research Institute) in Clovis CA has 
one brave little trooper they've nicknamed Whitey the Invincible, an
albino lab mouse, who was born in July of 1976; they've been injecting
him with chocolate milk twice a week ever since he was born, and he's still
going strong.

Please make sure you read the MILK FAQ (<http://www.milk.com/faq/>) to
understand the full implications. I hope this information proves useful in
your debate.
