    Published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition is a paper from researchers at University of L’Aquilla (Italy) who were comparing the benefits of dark chocolate against white chocolate. They report insulin resistance was significantly lowered when subjects ate dark chocolate. Experts believe adding milk and sugar to dark chocolate negates the natural flavanols. Experts have cautioned against diabetics from eating a diet of dark chocolate but many believe as a precaution in healthy people addition of dark chocolate may reduce the risk of damaging changes in the body that can lead to insulin resistance diabetes

    is this good news for all chocolate lovers out there!?

    It had to be high quality dark chocolate (ie high coco solids 75% +) to have the 'beneficial' effects !
