Dark chocolate reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes

The news about dark chocolate just keeps getting better.

Researchers, whose study was published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, found that study participants who indulged in dark chocolate had a reduced risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Specifically, people who ate two or more servings each week experienced a 17% reduction. And, if their BMI was under 25, their risk reduction jumped to an incredible 41%!

I'd say that's a compelling reason to enjoy your dessert, wouldn't you?
