Another good thing about chocolate

Eating chocolate reduces the likelihood of having a stroke. Two especially good things about it are that:

  • The amounts they are talking about are amounts a person might eat, an ounce or two a week, not like some of the studies where you would have to eat your body weight in something to get any good out of it.
  • It's dose related. Two ounces a week protects better than one ounce.
That's good enough for me. I'm doing a similar long-term study at my house, though I'll admit to "administering" more chocolate than they did in this study. My partner and I are the subjects, and the cats are the control. So far, none of us has had a stroke.
