    People who ate chocolate more than once a week were 48% less likely to get type 2 diabetes over the next 5 years compared to people who never ate chocolate according to a new study.

    This was after adjusting for cardiovascular, lifestyle and dietary factors including other polyphenol-rich beverages.

    “Compounds in cocoa and chocolate have established cardiovascular benefits, including beneficial effects on insulin resistance, a risk factor for type 2 diabetes mellitus,”  the paper notes.
