Chocolate Does A Body Good!

 A new research study to melt my heart…

Chocolate may not be as hazardous to your waistline as you think — at least in moderation. A new study shows that people who eat chocolate frequently have lower body mass indexes than less avid consumers. The researchers could not explain precisely why something usually loaded with sugar, fat and calories have a beneficial influence on BMI. However, they suspect that antioxidants and other compounds in chocolate may deliver a metabolic boost that can offset its caloric downside.
To the delight of chocoholics worldwide, this is not the first time a study of morsel goodness has been released. In 2009, researchers in Sweden found evidence that people who eat chocolate have increased survival rates after a heart attack — and it may be that the more they eat, the better the outcome.
So to celebrate the good news, let’s have a Hershey Cookies & Cream bar and pretend like the fat and calories Never Even Happened!
