Now dark chocolate is even better for your heart!
Yet more fabulous news about the health benefits of dark chocolate!
As I noted here a few months ago, there's lots of authoritative evidence that dark chocolate is good for your heart. Now Discoblog reports on a Swedish study showing that folks who had already had a heart attack were less likely to die of heart disease if they ate dark chocolate 2 or 3 times a week. (In fact, there's a hint that the more dark chocolate they ate, the less likely they were to die of heart disease. But let's not go overboard and forget all the evil calories also lurking in that luscious confection.)
Remember: health benefits are associated only with dark chocolate, not milk chocolate.
