Chocolate is good for your heart.
Past studies have shown that chocolate lowers bad cholesterol and prevents atrial fibrillation, a type of irregular heartbeat.
And now, new research provides perhaps the strongest evidence yet that eating chocolate improves cardiovascular health.
The massive study followed 336,289 people for nine years. It found that eating chocolate more than once a week led to an 8% lower risk of heart disease.
