    Men consuming 1-3 servings of chocolate per month were 7% less likely to get diabetes during an average follow-up of 9.2 years compared to men who never ate chocolate according to data from 18,235 male physicians in the Physicians Health Study.

    Men consuming 1 serving of chocolate per week were 14% less likely to get diabetes during an average follow-up of 9.2 years compared to men who never ate chocolate according to data from 18,235 male physicians in the Physicians Health Study.

    Men consuming 2 or more servings of chocolate/week were 17% less likely to get diabetes during an average follow-up of 9.2 years compared to men who never ate chocolate according to data from 18,235 male physicians in the Physicians Health Study.

    The effect was much stronger in normal-weight men (BMI less than 25), and in men younger than 65.

    In men younger than 65, those who consume 2 or more servings of chocolate/week were 27% less likely to get diabetes compared to those who never ate chocolate.

    In normal-weight men (BMI less than 25), those who consume 2 or more servings of chocolate/week were 41% less likely to get diabetes compared to those who never ate chocolate.
