Yet another study about all the reasons dark chocolate should be part of your diet hit the press recently. This one focused on brain function and the findings were pretty exciting (particularly for a chocoholic like me). The researchers conducting the Maine-Syracuse Longitudinal Study have been following the cognitive abilities of more than a thousand patients since the 70’s. They decided to collect dietary data for the latest 5-year wave. What they found was that people who ate chocolate at least once/week performed significantly better on organization, memory and abstract reasoning tests among other things. Based on these learnings, the study’s author said that next, he’d “really like to see what happens when people eat tons of chocolate.” Clearly I need to sign up!
