This is some of the best news of all time!
My mum is a dental nurse, so I have had many a conversation about how bad chocolate is for you, so this news is music to my ears!
The University of Aberdeen conducted research that chocolate showed eaters had 11% lesser risk of cardiovascular disease and a 25% lesser chance of associated death. Coronory heart disease hospital admissions were down 9%,and you are 23% less likely to have a stroke.
Apparently, the ideal amount of chocolate to eat a day is 100g… Which Is just over 2 standard Cadbury’s bars. That’ll do nicely!
Unsurprisingly, it isn’t quite that simple, though.
The survey was done on 21,000 people, which obviously included a great deal of variables. Like, the people in the study who ate the most chocolate were younger and lighter, so less likely to have problems like that, and are more likely to engage in exercise and physical activity.
Scientists are pretty keen to highlight that there is a link between chocolate and better health, but it isn’t necessarily a direct result, so are advising against going out and eating loads of Galaxy as a measure of keeping healthy.
Stil.. Definitely going to feel a tad better about eating it now!
