I Believe In Science

EVIDENCE OF HEART BENEFITS FROM CHOCOLATE

I need a new drug...

Here's the money quote: "By many measures, consumption of chocolate was linked to lower rates of stroke, coronary heart disease, blood pressure and other cardiovascular conditions."  Well, I say praise the Lord and pass the Hershey's!  Preferably with almonds...

  5. I think I read something about this a couple of years ago, which was why you saw a lot of extra-dark or special-dark chocolate on the store shelves. The sugar and fat tend to mitigate the benefits . . . almonds are healthy though.

  7. You know, I bet the almonds add to the health benefits. I hear nuts are REALLY good for you, too.
