More on the health food that tastes good

A study out of the Nestle Research Center in Switzerland (no chance of conflict of interest there) demonstrated that 1.4 ounces of dark chocolate a day lowered the amount of stress hormones in folks’ blood streams, presumably reflecting reduced body reaction to life stress. A good thing.

Previous studies have demonstrated that dark chocolate is cardioprotective and I have mentioned that research in previous blogs. So, finally a health food that tastes good and appeals to the masses. Eat (remember, all things in moderation) live long and be healthy.

Just saw this and thought I'd add it: How to pick healthy chocolate
