Chocolate reduces stroke risk

A recently released Sweedish study that looked into the link between chocolate consumtion and stroke risk in men concluded that:

... men who consume the most chocolate have a 17% lower risk of stroke than those who consume the least ....

Filed next to the studies which show that red wine is good for the heart.

I mentioned this to DW with the claim that "I must have chocolate or I'll die".

She was skeptical. Especially when I told her it only applied to men.

As a background, chocolate has a very short life expectancy in this house. We have a very open, honest, and trusting relationship.

Except, of course, when it comes to matters involving chocolate.
