Chocolate reduces diabetes 48%


Hi, I'm Larry Hobbs @ FatNews.com.

People who ate chocolate more than once a week had a 48% lower chance of getting type 2 diabetes

People who ate chocolate more than once a week were 48% less likely to get type 2 diabetes in the next 5 years compared to people who never ate chocolate, according to a new study.

This was after adjusting cardiovascular, lifestyle and dietary factors, including other beverages rich in polyphenols.

"The cocoa and chocolate compounds have established cardiovascular benefits, including the beneficial effects on insulin resistance, a risk factor for type 2 diabetes mellitus," the paper said.
