    The one-fourth of people with the highest intake of chocolate were 17% less likely to have a stroke over the next 10 years compared to the one-fourth of people who ate the least according to a study from Sweden.

    A meta-analysis of 5 studies found similar results, that people consuming the most chocolate were 19% less likely to have a stroke (of any type) compared to people eating the least, the paper notes.
