You already have an excuse: eating chocolate is good for the heart
August 31, 2020
Not all is bad news when we talk about taking care of cardiovascular health and preventing a heart attack. The recommendations can go beyond dieting to lose belly fat and do cardiovascular exercise (which, too). Sometimes cardiologists give us a joy like the one published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology, the journal of the European Society of Cardiology. The news? Than eating chocolate at least once a week is associated with a lower risk of heart disease.
The article that affirms such a marvel, made on Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, suggests that chocolate helps keep the heart's blood vessels healthy, something that was already suspected since in previous research it was already possible to verify that chocolate benefited other heart-healthy parameters, for example, helping to improve blood pressure.
