One More Reason Chocolate Is Great

Science Daily reports [7] that a cocoa discovery may have greater implications for human health than penicillin. Yes, you read that correctly – chocolate may be the biggest health boon…ever.

More research needs to be done, of course, but remember these healthy chocolate pointers:

- Stick with dark chocolate (it’s lower in sugar and higher in antioxidants)

- Stick to small portions (chocolate, like cheese and nuts, is very high in calories)

- Enjoy!

What Is Being Done About Spinach and Peanut Butter?

The FDA issued voluntary guidelines [10] today in the hopes that food manufacturers will clean up their act. Legislation isn’t being, er, ruled out, but the hope is that voluntary guidelines will be effective.

Web It Out:

A very entertaining and interesting article debunks online dating services [11] that claim to use highly-accurate psychological matching. Not only is it entertaining, it’s also a good way to learn about scientific accuracy (or, in this case, the lack of it) in studies.

Something any parent could have told them [12].
