    Healthy Chocolate Binging...

    According to an article on CBC Health and Science News, eating a lot of Dark Chocolate is A-Okay. A group of experts at McGill University concluded that eating the dark variety can actually be good for you.

    Chocolate that contains a lot of cocoa is rich in flavonoids, and apparently, they help thin blood. This reduces the risk of heart attacks caused by blood clots.

    "The flavonoids that are in chocolate have been shown to reduce blood pressure. They have been shown to reduce platelet aggregation, and to reduce the chance that cholesterol gets converted into a more dangerous form," said Joe Schwarcz, director of the McGill Office for Science and Society.

    Of course, there is always a dark side to anything (heh...) and chocolate is obviously laced with sugar, and can be highly addictive. This can cause many health problems if abused, such as tooth decay and obesity.
