Habitual chocolate consumption and risk of cardiovascular disease among healthy men and women

Habitual chocolate consumption and risk of cardiovascular disease among healthy men and women

Chocolate is an important dietary source of flavonoid antioxidants, which are hypothesised to have a beneficial effect on endothelial function and protect against cardiovascular disease (CVD).

In this podcast Dr Alistair Lindsay talks to Dr Phyo K Myint about his team's research into this topic. In order to evaluate any association between habitual chocolate consumption and the risk of cardiovascular events, they analysed data from the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer-Norfolk (EPIC-Norfolk), and incorporated the results from this observational study into the evidence available to date.
