The best news you will read all day - chocolate is good for you!

Imagine the scene – I was on a freezing cold train this morning in a really bad Monday mood! I really wasn’t ready for my week at all. However that all changed once I opened my paper!

Inside this morning’s Metro read and I quote: “Latest research –chocolate contains more healthy plant compounds, gram-for-gram, than fruit juice.”

It showed both dark chocolate and cocoa had more cancer-busting antioxidant activity and more flavanols than fruit.

Lead author Dr Debra Millar ( I like her already) , at the Hershey Centre for Health and Nutrition, in Pennsylvania, wrote: ‘Natural cocoa powder and dark chocolate have significantly greater TF (total flavanol) values than the other fruit powders and juices tested, respectively.’

So its official – I’ve been saying it for ages – CHOCOLATE IS GOOD FOR YOU!

All we need now is a report saying cream cake makes you thin and that fish and chips lowers cholesterol and my life will be complete!!

Happy Monday – Steve xxx
