Eating Chocolate Reduces Risk of Death in Heart Attack Survivors

Here's one new piece of data that I'm very happy to pass along.

It turns out that new research from Stockholm shows that chocolate consumption decreases the risk of death post-MI. Is this because of the anti-oxidant properties of chocolate. Or is it that patients who eat chocolate are happier (patients with optimistic outlook and less depression always do better post-MI). Either way, does it really matter? So as long as its in moderation, go out and have some chocolate.
