A choc a day keeps the doc away

Good news for chocolate lovers such as myself: according to new research, four squares of dark chocolate should be included daily in a healthy diet. The flavanol molecules in dark chocolate act like aspirin, relaxing blood vessels and thus preventing clotting and heart attacks; they also increase blood flow to the brain, suggesting that they could help treat dementia and strokes. Hurray.
