Study: Chocolate Lovers Have Lower Risk for Strokes

A new study found that having a sweet tooth might not be all bad, especially if you love chocolate. Researchers studied the effects of chocolate in 33,000 women and found the more chocolate they ate, they had less of a chance for having a stroke.

The results add to a growing body of evidence linking cocoa consumption to heart health, but they aren’t a free pass to gorge on chocolate.

“Given the observational design of the study, findings from this study cannot prove that it’s chocolate that lowers the risk of stroke,” Susanna Larsson from Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm told Reuters Health in an email.

“Chocolate should be consumed in moderation as it is high in calories, fat, and sugar,” she said. “As dark chocolate contains more cocoa and less sugar than milk chocolate, consumption of dark chocolate would be more beneficial.”

Do you eat chocolate? White, milk or dark? Pardon me, I’m off to the vending machine for a candy bar. :)
