Eat Chocolate And Live To 100

 

 

Two chocoholics lived to be 122 and 119 years old.

The world's oldest centenarians, Jeanne Calment (France, 1875 to 1997) and Sarah Knauss (U.S.A., 1880 to 1999) were chocoholics.

There is news that chocolate milk is good for athletes as well.

Dark chocolate, has high levels of antioxidants called flavonoids. These help to remove free radicals in the blood.

Chocolate also appears to slow clotting of platelets for up to 12 hours after eating. This helps to prevent blood clots which can cause heart attacks and strokes.

Once again chocolate proves itself to be a healthful food. It helps to ease diarrhea.
