New research suggests chocolate can cut the risk of heart disease

New research published in the British Medical Journal suggests regularly consuming chocolate can cut the risk of heart disease by a third.

Scientists at the University of Cambridge looked more than 114-thousand people and found those who consumed the most chocolate had a 37 per cent lower risk of heart disease, and were 29 per cent less likely to suffer a stroke than those who ate the least.

However researchers told USA Today their findings are no excuse to pig out because most chocolate available in stores has a high fat and sugar content.

They recommend, eating chocolate regularly and in moderation.
