Yesterday I posted that when I indulge in delicious treats, I’ll limit it to dark chocolate. Apparently I have the right idea! According to a new study, chocolate lovers have fewer strokes.
Researchers studying more than 33,000 Swedish women found that the more chocolate women said they ate, the lower their risk of stroke…Nearly 800,000 Americans suffer a stroke every year, with about a sixth of them dying of it and many more left disabled.
Of course, that isn’t a free pass to pig out on chocolate. Dark chocolate is lower in sugar and fats so eating it in moderation is the way to go. Of course, doctors recommend quitting smoking, exercising more and eating a healthier diet to avoid stroke first!
