Phyo Myint, a professor at the University of Aberdeen’s School of Medicine and Dentistry, had the following to say regarding the study’s findings:
“Our study concludes that cumulative evidence suggests higher chocolate intake is associated with a lower risk of future cardiovascular events. This may indicate that not only flavonoids, but also other compounds, possibly related to milk constituents, such as calcium and fatty acids, may provide an explanation for the observed association. There doesn’t seem to be any evidence of moderate consumption of chocolate increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, conclude the researchers.”
It looks like chocolate lovers everywhere can finally rejoice! But remember, moderation is the key to healthy living.
