?Linoleic acid‘s do seem to contribute to heart disease and  sun damage they’ve been known to block cellular respiration creating damage to the cell. Chocolate is high and magnesium potassium zinc niacin copper and folate.

?Anything containing gelatin is also full of glycine and glutamine in amino acids that help lower inflammation within the gut.

These amino acids also balance the pro inflammatory amino acids of tryptophan and methionine too much tryptophan converts to serotonin and as much as we like to believe it’s the happy hormone too much of it can inflame the cells.
