Dark chocolate reduce heart attacks

Volume 0, . Comments

A few squares of dark chocolate a day could reduce the risk of heart attack by almost 50 percent, according to Diane Becker, a researcher with Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

Becker’s research found that blood platelets clotted more slowly in people who had eaten a little daily chocolate.


This is significant, because when platelets clump, a clot can form.

A clot that blocks a blood vessel can lead to a heart attack.
