Great news for all you chocolate lovers out there!

A recently released study conducted on over 55 thousand people in Denmark has shown a reduced risk of atrial fibrillation (AF) in those who eat a moderate amount of chocolate. The results were the same in both women and men. AF is linked with a higher risk of stroke, heart failure, cognitive decline, dementia, and death.

Just make sure you buy the high quality chocolate with the high cacao (NOT cocoa) content. You can read more about why here. Or better still make your own! I use this recipe.

Enjoy your indulgence once in awhile knowing its doing you good!
