Eating Dark Chocolate Every Day Is Good For Your Heart

Members of the study ate one one square of the German chocolate bar Ritter Sport (yum!) every day. By the end of the study, they had lower blood pressure than those who ate white chocolate.

The drop in blood pressure was significant enough to potentially reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Mmmm, chocolate!
