    People who had a heart attack who ate chocolate twice or more per week were 66% less likely to have died from heart-related problems over the 8 years following their heart attack compared to people who never ate chocolate according to the Stockholm Heart Epidemiology Program.

    People who ate chocolate up to once a week were 44% less likely to have died from heart-related problems over the 8 years following their heart attack compared to people who never ate chocolate.

    People who ate chocolate less than once a month were 27% less likely to have died from heart-related problems over the 8 years following their heart attack compared to people who never ate chocolate.

    Chocolate consumption had a strong inverse association with cardiac mortality,” the authors of the study concluded.
