A new study found truth in the connection between eating chocolate and acne.

Researchers at the University of Miami studied 10 men who had previously been diagnosed with acne.

The men then ate up to eight ounces of pure chocolate and then went chocolate-free for a week.

At the beginning of the study, the men had an average of three pimples, but by the end of the week they had an average of 18.

The man who ate the most chocolate had 70 pimples by the end of the week.
