Study Shows: Dark chocolate ingredient may prevent obesity, diabetes

I do prefer dark to all the other chocolates.  And "white chocolate" is an oxymoron in my book.

Too bad the source is Fox News:

Dark chocolate is rich in flavonols, a type of antioxidant shown to improve cardiovascular health by lowering blood pressure and improving blood flow. In order to determine whether flavonols also have a protective effect on weight, researchers placed lab mice on a high-fat diet rich in flavonols.

Their results, published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, demonstrated that a flavonol known as oligomeric procyanidins (PCs) seemed to have the greatest protective effect on health.
