Chocolate as Heart Medicine?

The New York Times reports on a Swedish study that post-heart attack survival rates improve with increased doses of chocolate. I’m no doctor, and I won’t make any claims for the health benefits of chocolate, but it is interesting to see serious study done on the effects of all the chemistry that comes out of that one little bean. (And, I gotta say, I’m much happier that this correlation was found with chocolate and not, say, celery!)

  1. Fantastic news for the entire chocolate-eating community. Perhaps this is just the beginning as more and more studies find chocolate is in fact good for us.
