Good News from Today's Guardian!
"Chocolate can be good for women's hearts".
A team of Swedish researchers, using a sample of 42,000 Swedish women aged 48 to 83 has found that one or two servings of good-quality chocolate may reduce the risk of developing heart failure by nearly a third.
The bad news is that while moderate chocolate consumption (19 to 30g a week) significantly reduced the risk of heart failure, the benefit was diminished when subjects ate more (1 serving a day) or less (1 to 3 servings a month). But, still, their risk was 26% lower than those who ate none at all.
Life is good.
