Poverty is the problem. Wealth is the solution.
Here are a few examples of the benefits:
•At 510 milligrams, dark chocolate contains more flavenols, powerful protective phytonutrients, per 100 grams than apples (110 mg), cherries (96 mg), brewed black tea (65 mg) or red wine (65 mg).
•Cocoa has a higher antioxidant capacity than teas or red wine.
•Population studies suggest that higher flavenoid intake may be associated with improved heart health.
•In people with high blood pressure, dark chocolate lowers blood pressure and LDL (the so-called "bad") cholesterol.
•Also in people with high blood pressure, dark chocolate enhances blood flow, relaxes blood vessels and decreases insulin sensitivity.
Wish they had linked to some of these studies...
