Having some chocolate today?

A St. Valentine Day's Special for stroke prevention (maybe):

Chocolate lovers healthy heart: less likely to suffer from stroke, study reports:

People who ate one serving of chocolate per week were 22 percent less likely to have a stroke than those who ate no chocolate, according to a research analysis released at the American Academy of Neurology's annual meeting Thursday.

The research merely shows an association, of course, so it is far from conclusive. And cardiologists regard the findings with skepticism.

Not that this one study brings any absolute conclusion, as some quoted in the article note, but one more reason to enjoy some chocolate. But keeping in other recent posts about stroke prevention, just in moderation, please.
