Giving up chocolate is bad for your health

Giving up chocolate altogether is not necessarily good for your health.

So says research published in the journal Swiss Medical Weekly.

The Zurich-based scientists behind the study looked at a group of 3,000 people suffering from atrial fibrillation.

The result: moderate chocolate consumption was associated with a lower risk of hospitalisation and death.

The most favourable effect was observed with a consumption of two to six chocolate bars per week.
