Chocolate reduces stroke risk in men

According to a recent article from the Guardian, research in Sweden shows that men who eat a standard-sized chocolate bar each week could lower their chance of suffering a stroke in later life by 17%. The study carried out by Susanna Larsson at the Karolinska Institute, also suggests that eating more than a bar per week could lower the risks even further. Larsson’s research, which included a questionnaire given to 37,103 Swedish men between 49 and 75 established that ”High chocolate consumption was associated with a lower risk of stroke.”

We always knew chocolate was a wonderful thing.
