Make Up Your Mind!
A recent study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition examined the short term effects of dark chocolate and cocoa in relationship to cardiovascular health for healthy older adults - its thumbs down for the boomers. It seems dark chocolate is boosting the heart rate
Prior research and stories hyped that dark chocolate was good for your heart health. Now you have to forget that delectable little piece of dark, rich chocolate that you had each night and empty your cupboard of the exotically sourced, artisan chocolates. Another blow to maturity!
Honestly, I don't have to eat the chocolate to get my pulse rate up, just mention chocolate and I'm panting.
Here is the link to the story. Point of interest, the article states that Hersey sponsored the study....as Arte Johnson on Laugh In used to say "Veeery Interesting!!"
