Chocolate Prevents Stroke

As if there wasn't enough positive research on chocolate (click HERE to read the other studies I've covered), here's another study that shows weekly consumption of moderate amounts could lower risk of stroke.

The study examined data from more than 37,000 men over 10 years to investigate potential links between chocolate consumption and the risk of stroke. Interestingly, although it's dark chocolate has previously been associated with heart health benefits, but about 90% of the chocolate consumed during the study was milk chocolate.

Analysis revealed that men who ate the largest amount of chocolate (about 63 g/week) had a 17% lower risk of stroke compared to those who did not consume any chocolate.
 The researchers said that for every 50 g/week increase in chocolate consumption, the risk of stroke decreased by about 14%.

Subscribers will already know chocolate is one of my vices, so if you even want to...like, um...buy me a gift, don't think too hard.  ;)
