Chocolate can be good for your heart according to the American Heart Association.
Most dark chocolate is high in flavonoids, particularly a subtype called flavanols that are associated with a lower risk of heart disease. Some studies suggest chocolate or cocoa consumption is associated with a lower risk of insulin resistance and high blood pressure in adults.
