  CHOCOLATE IS GOOD FOR YOU Kesta Allen Can chocolatehelp you livelonger?    My mother would never allow me  to eat sweets and chocolate. She said that chocolates were bad for me and that they would damage  my teeth. What would she say about the new research  which says that chocolate is good for you? Over the last couple of years a number of surprising clams  have been made about chocolate. Chocolate m!roves  the memory and helps children to pass exams. Can these claims be true? Researchers  have ound  that men who eat sweets and chocolates regularly live for almost a year longer than those men who never, or only occasionally eat them.his new evidence comes from a study of approximately eight thousand !merican menover a period of eighty years. he longest living men were those who ate chocolate between once and three times a month. hey cut their rs# o dea$h   %& a $hrd . Menwho ate chocolate and sweets once or twice a wee cut their ris s by a #uarter. $ven those men who ate chocolate more than three times a wee lived longer than those who never or seldom  ate sweets or chocolate. I$ s %eleved $ha$  the answer to these ndngs   les n  the antioxidant effect of  !henols  which are found in chocolate. ! small piece of chocolate contains the same number of phenols as a glass of red wine. %henols have been found to help to reduce cholesterol and may help to protect against forms of cancer.&owever, before we all rush o    to the sweet shop and eat all the chocolate we can buy, doctors advise against over'ndulgence .
