Chocolate's health effects to be tested by scientists over next four years


Much has been said about the health benefits of chocolate, and a new study set to take place over the next four years could help clarify whether or not all the hype surrounding this sweet treat is really substantiated. Sponsored by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI), as well as Mars Inc., maker of Snickers and M&M's, the study will evaluate the effects of high-dose cocoa flavanols in human test subjects to see if chocolate really can prevent heart attacks and strokes as claimed.
