There are number of questions that arise as the list of foods that are good for the heart grows. Today I want to raise the question of chocolates. Chocolates have always been considered bad for the heart.
Now the message that is being promoted is that dark chocolates are good compared to white and other mild coloured chocolates.
Is it really true?
Is it a trade promotion?
Feedback by those who know the facts behind this would help clarify the true position.
