A research group in University of Cambridge reported that, "lower the risk of heart diseases by eating a moderate amount of Chocolate periodically".
The Dr. Oscar Franco's group analyzed the occurrence of cardiovascular disease involving 114,009 adults, ages 25 to 93.

On the other hand, Chocolate consumption had no effect on the occurrence of heart failure.
