Men, Eat Your Chocolate!

According to a new study posted in Neurology Magazine Online, eating moderate amounts of chocolate has proven to lower stroke risk in men. In this study, men who ate the largest amount of chocolate, about a third of a cup of choco chips per week had a lower risk of stroke (about 17%) compared to those who didn't have any choco. Can't this be true for women??? I want chocolate, haha!

This beneficial effect of chocolate on stroke may be related to the flavanoids in the yummy treat. The study used milk chocolate as opposed to dark...something that I find equally as interesting. The study was supported by the Swedish Council for Working Life and Social Research. Mmm, Swedes and Cocoa, kind of like Ebony and Ivory!
