Chocolate linked to stroke prevention

This is great news. Now they just have to make sure it works for women too.

Well I'm just going to take it as a sign from God that chocolate is really something to be consumed regularly for my health. HA! Besides, research on what is good for women seems to take longer either to do or to get published, not sure which it is.

Since I am not sure where it fits in, I have always said that chocolate should be its own food group. So eat hearty my friends. And pay tribute to Chief Montezuma.

Science is finally catching up with me. Steaks are no longer bad for you, wine is beneficial, coffee can have some benefits, and now chocolate is good for you.

These are all things I have known for years and followed to the letter.

The research is taking longer for women because the women just grab the chocolate and run!

It's true, I've signed up for all the trials and just cannot stick to their guidelines.
