You could do so much better, don't cheat on your diet, it's not worth it.
Correction - raw cacao/cocoa/carob in its unadulterated state is teeming with polyphenols and antioxidants. Along with some vitamin E and A, they are by no means unhealthy. That is, until production strips them of their fibre, which contains their fat soluble vitamins, as well as adding whey (casein counteracts antioxidating activity) and heaven knows what chocolate she's talking about.
I'm afraid most educated people would consider asexuality a disorder, its prevalence according a study done in 2004 is at about 1% of the population, so it isnt 'normal'. One of the prime functions and instincts of humans is to have intercourse and reproduce, so to not have this instinct is certainly not normal. Its like depression, its a lack of certain chemicals in the brain. Hopefully in the next few years research will narrow down which chemicals these are, and then after a bit longer there will be a medication that will supplement this chemical(s) as independently as possible.
Actually 113 being abnormal is basically the definition of a disorder. What is Down's syndrome? 3 pairs of chromosome 21. What is klienfelters syndrome? 2 X chromosomes and a Y chromosome. These disorders stem from abnormality. Evolutionarily speaking, those people who are homosexual or asexual have not only an abnormality but a debilitating disorder that will remove them from the gene pool (this is equivalent to death evolutionarily). So while it may not need to be fixed (the world is becoming overcrowded as it is) it is none the less a disorder.
