Newsflash! In England, chocolate has been declared a health food. The flavinoids (whatever those are) in dark chocolate have been proven to be beneficial in helping the body absorb some of the nutrients in food. And it is now recommended even to diabetics, who long have been deprived of such decadent treats. There’s one catch, though. Contrary to most people’s thinking that if a little is good, more is better, you should have no more than the equivalent of half a candy bar per week. Hardly enough for a good chocolate binge– or even a mild self-indulgence.
