In today's Health Matters, You don't have to feel guilty for giving in to that chocolate craving. It could be good for you!
A new Swedish study finds women who ate the most chocolate, at least two candy bars a week, had a 20-percent reduced risk of stroke.
Cocoa contains antioxidants, which boost the cardiovascular system.
One thing to note, however that eating chocolate does not likely prevent stroke.
And doctors say it's not an excuse to pig out. They say everything in moderation.
The study appears in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. Dark chocolate has also been linked to lower blood pressure and reduced risk of heart disease.
