Why men should eat more chocolate

There is some good news for people with a sweet tooth.{}A new study finds eating moderate amounts of chocolate may lower the risk of stroke in men.{}Researchers followed the eating habits of more than 37,000 men in Sweden for about 10 years.{}

Those who ate the most chocolate, about two-point-two ounces a week, had a 17 percent lower risk of stroke over those years than those who ate little or no chocolate. {}Researchers pooled their data and found similar results for men and women in four previous studies. {}While the Swedish study did not look at the type of chocolate eaten, it notes that 90 percent of chocolate consumed in Sweden is milk chocolate.{}

The study was published in the journal Neurology.{}
