Is Chocolate Good for You?
Eating dark chocolate regularly is good for your health. Several recent studies have compared the mortality rate of those who eat dark chocolate to the mortality rate of those who do not eat dark chocolate and found that the dark chocolate eaters live longer on average. For example, a recent peer-reviewed article in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) found that eaters of dark chocolate had on average 5% fewer heart attacks, 10% fewer strokes and lived on average 2 years longer than those who did not regularly eat dark chocolate. No similar benefit was found for those who ate milk or white chocolate1.
Some observers have warned that chocolate is high in fat and has added sugar to soften the bitter taste of unsweetened chocolate. Both fat and sugar have been blamed for contributing to Americas obesity epidemic. However, the results from the NEJM study cited above, and from other studies, indicate that the benefits of eating dark chocolate outweigh the risks.
In summary, the studies indicate that it might be beneficial for those who like dark chocolate to consume moderate amounts regularly. The potential benefits could also be obtained by those who do not like chocolate by exercising regularly, eating a healthy diet and controlling weight. And the risk is that one might overdo a good thing and gain weight from too much chocolate. But on balance regular consumption of a moderate amount of dark chocolate has life-aiding benefits.
