Study: Chocolate improves blood vessel function
• Test subjects ate 8 ounces of dark chocolate or a placebo each day
• Some of the chocolate contained sugar; some was unsweetened
• Both chocolate groups showed better blood vessel expansion, contraction
• Benefit was greater for unsweetened chocolate than for chocolate with sugar
Sweeeeeeeet! I’ll just take the chocolate as an I.V. drip…I don’t need any of that worthless medicine. Chocolate will take care of everything. Sweet, sweet chocolate…
Even though too much of it might result in the risk of becoming obese or getting diabetes…what-the-hay…at least your blood vessel function will be off the chain!

The above study is also supported by an Italian study done two years ago that also mentions some of the health benefits of dark chocolate.
