A new study from Sweden now reports that eating chocolate may help reduce the risk of stroke. A team of research scientists analyzed the dietary intake of 37,103 men for more than 10 years, during which 1,995 incidents of stroke were recorded.

Men in the top one-quarter of chocolate consumption (averaging 2.2 ounces per week equivalent to between 1.5 and 2 candy bars)
were 17% less likely to suffer a stroke than those in the lowest group, those averaging no chocolate consumption.

However, men with a history of high blood pressure did not see a lower risk with greater chocolate intake. The Swedish scientists also performed a meta-analysis of 5 studies, including their new study, and found a similar association between chocolate and lower
stroke risk among women as well as men.

"Flavonoids in chocolate may be protective against cardiovascular disease through antioxidant, antiplatelet, and anti-inflammatory effects," the researchers concluded.
