Chocolate News

Yesterday the BBC news site featured an article on how dark chocolate may be helpful to those who suffer from chronic fatigue. From the article there were links to multiple articles on the benefits of dark chocolate. The other articles spoke of how chocolate is useful for lowering blood pressure, reducing the risk of blood clots, has "health benefits", may reduce heart disease, and how it is probably just good for you in general.

At the risk of sounding arrogant, I have to just say that any woman could have told us these simple truths. Even Heather, at the tender age of eight, can explain the benefits of a chunk. No scientist had to tell her this. She knows it instinctively, the way that a baby knows a mother's arms are a good place to be.

So thanks for confirming what we already knew, dear BBC. The women of the world appreciate the vote of confidence in our keen scientific discernment.

thanks for the reminder, rebecca. we've actually had very little chocolate this last year for the same reason. i guess we're waiting for women to take over the trade and run it fairly.
