Dark chocolate is healthy?

You’ve probably heard that dark chocolate is full of antioxidants, even a superfood, but just how healthy is the chocolate you’ve been eating—and why?

Dr. Michael Greger explains the connection in his NutritionFacts.org video between dark chocolate and artery function—and what studies not funded by the chocolate industry show about the effect of cocoa on arterial health.
