Chocolate Good For Your Heart


A new study by the University of Surrey reveals that chocolate can lower high blood pressure. Researchers gave study participants chocolate and cocoa over the course of several hours and then monitored their blood pressure and other vitals. They found that consuming cocoa lowers blood pressure and arterial stiffness. The researchers said; “The positive impact cocoa flavanols have on our cardiovascular system, in particular, blood vessel function and blood pressure, is undeniable. Doctors often fear that some blood pressure tablets can decrease the blood pressure too much on some days. What we have found indicates that cocoa flavanols only decrease blood pressure if it is elevated. Working with participants’ personal health technologies showed us how variable blood pressure and arterial stiffness can be from day to day and shows the role of personal health monitors in developing and implementing effective personalized care.”

Dear Fonseca

I had a first date the other night. I met my date on Match.com. We had torrid conversations on there before meeting for dinner. The chemistry was not there in person. We could both feel it. The date became more and more uncomfortable as the night wore on. My date went to the bathroom before our check arrived. I told the server to bring two checks because I was not going to pay for her knowing we weren't going to have a second date. She got mad and tried to embarrass me in the restaurant. She said I was wrong. I don't think I was. Do you think I was wrong for making her pay for her own meal knowing we weren't going to have a second date?
