Dark chocolate reduce heart attacks
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.
