Heart and Chocolate

Here’s some heart health advice that’s very easy to follow. Eat chocolate. New research shows heart attack survivors who snack on chocolate at least twice a week could slash their risk of dying from heart disease.

The latest findings in the Journal of Internal Medicine are based on a study of nearly 1200 people. It shows chocolate-loving heart patients are nearly 70 per cent less likely to die from cardiac problems than those who rarely eat the confectionery. Even a weekly chocolate treat can help, almost halving the risk of death from heart problems.

This is the latest in a long line of studies highlighting the health benefits of chocolate, especially dark chocolate.
Previous investigations have found dark chocolate, which is rich in disease-busting antioxidants called flavonoids, can lower the risk of blood clots, protect against bowel cancer and even help prevent premature births. Doctors say and ounce or two is a sensible serving and  it’s best to stick to bars that contain at least 70 per cent cocoa.
