“Tis (almost) the Season for

Dark Chocolate!

There is a lot of information about why Dark Chocolate is good for you. Good for your heart, good for your mood, certainly good for the economy in February!

What about cancer? Does chocolate have an effect on cancer?

An article published by a Doctor at the Cancer Research Center of Hawaii states “intervention studies, despite their short duration, have reported some favorable changes in biomarkers assessing antioxidant status but very few findings related to inflammatory markers. In moderation, cocoa products may offer strong antioxidant effects in combination with a pleasurable eating experience. ”  High AntiOxidant foods are recommended for cancer patients, or anyone who wants to stay healthy and do everything they can to avoid cancer.

While there have been no conclusive studies that say eating Dark Chocolate helps prevent cancer,  if there is a chance and it tastes good, why not? Just remember chocolate is a high calorie food so everything in moderation!

Any Thoughts?
