A good Chocolate excuse...

Men who eat chocolate may be less likely to have a stroke. A study of more than 37,000 Swedish men older than 45 found that those who reported eating the most chocolate - about 1/3 cup of chocolate chips per week - were 17% less likely to have a stroke than those who ate the least. Chocolate contains antioxidants called flavonoids which is likely the source of the health benefit.
