The Good, the Bad, and the Silly: News about Chocolate
Posted Aug 26 2008 4:26pm
research article in the Journal of the American Medical Association reported that dark chocolate is so rich in the class of biochemicals called flavonols that it actually produces favorable effects on the cardiovascular system.
Just 30 calories worth -- about the size of a Hershey's Kiss -- not only helped lower blood pressure but raised levels of nitric oxide, which relaxed blood vessels.
The researchers emphasize that it's a
amount that they're talking about -- not enough to justify overindulgence.
David Leibovitz (who is living the sweet life in Paris)
, thinks this was a just silly marketing strategy.
I say, let them eat chocolate!
