DARK CHOCOLATE FOR YOUR HEART?

According to an article in Circulation: Heart Failure, an American Heart Association Journal, a serving of dark chocolate once or twice weekly led to a 32% reduction of heart failure risk for women.  Remember though, a serving is only about 1 ounce.  And that is dark chocolate, not milk chocolate or what is known as white chocolate which both have too much fat and sugar!  So when you want to indulge in chocolate, be sure it is dark chocolate and keep that indulgence down to an ounce or two a week.
