Chocolate is good for you ... Recent research from Italy suggests that chocolate can lower blood pressure, neutralise free radicals and boost the body's ability to metabolise sugar. However scientists pointed out that the effects were only found in dark chocolate and warned that anyone seeking to boost their health through chocolate should make alterations in their diet to counter the additional calories. Just another reason to eat it!!!

I have also heard that dark chocolates contain antioxidants, which help protect the body's cells. What about the calories in chocolate though? Do these supposed benefits outweigh the the negative parts of consuming chocolate? Also, does anyone know the suggested serving amount that you should consume to help your health?
