Health Benefits in Chocolate?

After over a year of one of the largest chocolate companies, Barry Callebaut AG, requesting to the European Union to claim that chocolate has health benefits on their products, they have received the right to do so.
After research at the University of Cambridge, the chocolate manufacturer wanted to raise sales by telling their clients that chocolate has health benefits. It has been proven that cocoa flavanols will help keep a normal blood flow. Their Acticoa line of products are processed in a way to keep more cocoa flavanols than regular chocolate will carry the label about the health benefits.
Although our dentists might not like us eating more chocolate, it has been proven that people who at the most chocolate brought their risk of developing a heart disease down by 37 percent and reduce the chance of stroke by 29 percent. This to me is more than enough to want to eat chocolate because not only is it tasty but it can save my life.
