Researchers in Australia, as reported by The Atlantic, studied more than 2,000 subjects who consumed dark chocolate every day over a period of ten years. The study, which was published in the British Medical Journal, found that "chocolate consumption seem to be associated with a substantial reduction in the risk of cardiometabolic disorders."
But if you think this study gives you permission to consume any kind of chocolate, think again! When it comes to cardiovascular health, the darker the chocolate, the better. Generally speaking, dark chocolate has a 60 percent content of cacao. The higher the percentage, the more flavonoids the chocolate contains.
What do you think of these findings?
