    Hope that gets through... Here's the potentially amazing story: Chocolate contains polyphenols which appear to strongly inhibit cancer and heart disease. The guy above noticed that it does so in a dose dependent manner. In the case of a group of Indians in Panama who drink about five cups a day, cancer and heart disease almost vanish! Dark chocolate could be the most powerful antiaging substance yet found!

    Those indians likely drink it bitter, without milf or sugar. Arrr, times were tuff in them days.

    True, true! Have been eating dark chocolate daily for some time now - from what I understand, percentage of cocoa should be 60% or more for therapeutic effects. Really good stuff is the Maya Gold bar made by Green & Black's Organic - it has added spices, orange, cinnamon and vanilla - my favourite!

    We have a shop that also makes hot chocolate the South American way with added pepper, not sure if it is cayenne or not but it is spicy and good! Drink of the gods. It comes in small espresso-like cups because it is VERY RICH.

    I eat chocolate for those very reasons..

    Anything above 70% tastes gross..

    Typo, met. Nothing subconscious involved there, surely.

    Chocolate does give some people insomnia, like coffee does. So, if you're one of those, don't eat it late in the day.
