News: Chocolate May Be Good For the Brain!

As if I needed another reason to indulge in chocolate…it appears that the news of the week includes the headline that chocolate may keep the brain sharp as one ages.

According to a story written by Melissa Pandika of the  LA Times,  a study published in the journal Neurology indicates that  Boston-based researchers found a link between consuming chocolate and improved blood flow to the brain. Blood flow to the brain is important to keep memory sharp.

Although the findings are preliminary, it sure is good news to all of us who may feel the occasional tinge of guilt while indulging or over-indulging in our favorite sweet!
