Chocolate Update

Here’s an update on our recent chocolate post.  The British Medical Journal has performed a meta-analysis of a number of different studies on chocolate consumption and how it relates to a reduction of cardiometabolic disorders.  Some of the specific data includes: “the highest levels of chocolate consumption were associated with a 37 percent reduction in cardiovascular disease (relative risk 0.63 (95 percent confidence interval 0.44 to 0.90)) and a 29 percent reduction in stroke compared with the lowest levels.” The authors go on state that further research is needed to conclusively state any beneficial effects of chocolate consumption.
