Chocolate lowers blood pressure and participants stopped eating the chocolate!?
If they had used Sacred Organic Raw Stone Ground Chocolate they would have had much higher success rate of people sticking to their daily dosage and I bet the results would have been even better with extra happiness quota.

Researchers find that it IS possible to get sick of chocolate?

They say that laughter is the best medicine, but some people might endorse chocolate instead.
The dark variety has been shown to reduce blood pressure better than a placebo. Scientists credit the flavanols in dark chocolate -- they are thought to stimulate the production of nitric oxide, which helps relax the arteries so that blood can flow smoothly.
So if your doctor prescribed a daily dose of dark chocolate to keep hypertension at bay, would your first instinct be to head straight to Costco and buy a case of candy bars? Those who answered "yes" might get stuck with leftovers, Australian researchers are warning this week in the British Medical Journall

"14.6 grams of fat"
It depends on what kind of fat.
The body actually needs certain kinds of fat so arbitrarily low fat diets can be bad.

^ Tammy Hershey's dark chocolate really does taste awful. They should have used other dark chocolates to see if that made a difference. :O

It is no wonder the people didn't want to continue eating the chocolate since this article mentions hersheys 'special dark' as a reference.
Can you imagine hospital chocolate? ...ick. What kind of sweeteners are they using? Not to mention the preservatives used~
Then there's the whole issue that Helen Caldicott so generously points out that hersheys is growing chocolate in a toxic field contaminated with radiation from nuclear fallout.
If people didn't want to eat that stuff, surely it shows that human intelligence is increasing :)
