dark-chocolatesA new Harvard study has suggested that eating a small portion of good quality dark chocolate for at least 2-3 times a month may help to beat the heart failure risk in women. So ladies this is good news for you as this is a proven facts that majority of ladies are fans of chocolates.

While discussing about the results of this study senior study author Dr. Murray Mittleman said that “At least for women, consumption of chocolate seems to be associated with a decreased risk of heart failure, but the protective effect was only seen with relatively small amounts of consumption, less than one serving a day”.

Linda Van Horn, immediate past chair of the American Heart Association’s Nutrition Committee and professor in the Department of Preventive Medicine at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, said that people must not misinterpret the results of this study and in a press release this statement came from her side “This is not an ‘eat all you want’ take-home message, rather it’s that eating a little dark chocolate can be healthful, as long as other adverse behaviors do not occur, such as weight gain or excessive intake of non-nutrient dense ‘empty’ calories”.

Thus we can say that people have got the freedom of eating chocolates but in certain limits.
