A study out in Germany has that chocolate may be good for your heart. This is news for all chocolate lovers. The research was conducted over eight years. The research team the chocolate-eating habits and health of almost 20,000 people. They how much chocolate was in their diet to the number of heart and strokes people had. Lead researcher Brian Buijsse said: "The good news is that chocolate is not as bad as we used to think, and may even the risk of heart disease and stroke.” Mr Buijsse said his team found that dark chocolate was the kind to eat: "Dark chocolate the greatest effects, milk chocolate fewer, and white chocolate no effects," he said.

The German study that people who ate the most chocolate (at one bar per week) their risk of having a heart attack by 27 per cent. The risk of suffering a stroke was cut by as much as 48 per cent. Nutrition believe that natural compounds in chocolate called flavonols are good for our heart. Flavonols also help reduce blood . They are found in cocoa beans so dark chocolate (which has more cocoa) more of them than milk chocolate (which has more fat). Buijsse warns people not to eat lots of chocolate: "Eating higher will most likely result in weight . If people start eating small amounts of chocolate, it should replace something else, preferably other high- sweets or snacks."
