Hooray for dark chocolate! Eating about 30 calories a day of dark chocolate that's about half an ounce was shown to help lower blood pressure without weight gain or other adverse effects, according to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).

    Absolutely true. I have been eating a small amount of dark chocolate daily for awhile now (at least 70% cocoa).
