Chocolate Again Linked to Better Heart Health
Increased intakes of chocolate may decrease the risk of a heart attack victim from dying from heart related problems, this according to a joint US – Swedish study.
Eating chocolate two or more times per week was associated with a 66 per cent reduction in cardiac mortality, while less frequent consumption was also associated with smaller decreases in risk, this information has been published in the Journal of Internal Medicine.
