Scientists have found yet another benefit of chocolate. Men who eat the treat moderately may lower their risk of stroke. Research from the Karolinska Institute in Sweden shows that chocolate’s ability to reduce LDL cholesterol and blood pressure leads to a 17% decreased risk of stroke. Experts recommend eating 30 grams of dark chocolate regularly to get the heart health benefits. Eating too much can cause weight gain and reverse the effects.
