A chocolate a day keeps the doctor away

Forget apples—chocolate may be the next health food. Research has shown that people who eat a moderate amount of chocolate actually live longer than those who eat other candies or who eschew sweets altogether. The theory is that phenols contained in chocolate protect against heart disease, much like the phenols in red wine. However, the best chocolate strategy is to eat it moderately as too much chocolate can contribute to obesity, which significantly raises your chances of heart disease.
