Do you need more evidence that chocolate is good for you?
A Swedish study has found that chocolate protects your heart. Researchers working in the Stockholm Heart Epidemiology Program wanted to find out if chocolate can help prevent further heart problems in people who had already had one heart attack. They enrolled 1,169 people who had been hospitalized for a first heart attack but who did not have diabetes. Those who ate chocolate at least twice a week were the least likely die of heart disease during the eight years of the study.
The study was published in the Journal of Internal Medicine.
