Benefits With The Consumption Of Chocolate
The Maine-Syracuse Longitudinal Study (MSLS) done by researchers from the University of South Australia and the University of Maine confirms that at least once in a week chocolate consumption lowers diabetes and lowers risk of the development of diabetes after four to five years. A total of 908 non-diabetic and 45 diabetic individuals participated in the MSLS study. The study results show
- An individual not taking one chocolate in a week are at double risk of the development of diabetes compared with individuals taking at least one chocolate in a week
- Individual eating chocolate more than once in a week did not decrease risk factor to the development of diabetes
Researchers could not establish cause and relations between chocolate consumption and the development of diabetes. But researchers think cocoa flavanols found in dark chocolate are responsible for the health benefits. Previous studies done on chocolate consumption suggests one ounce (25 grams) of consumption per week may provide health benefits such as arterial stiffness (elasticity of the arteries) and better cognitive (mental) performance. The leader of the study is Georgina E Crichton, the University of South Australia and the study findings were published in The journal Appetite.
No Risk Of Heart Disease With Saturated Fat
A Norwegian diet intervention study (FATFUNC) shows high saturated fat diet may not increase the risk of heart disease. Researchers studied risk with high saturated fat and low carbohydrates diet on 38 men with abdominal obesity over 12 weeks duration. The study indicates no difference between high fat and low carbohydrate diet after measuring fat mass in the liver, heart and abdominal areas. Ottar Nygrd, who contributed to this study says the calculated risk of cardiovascular diseases did not increase with the high consumption of total and saturated fat.
Researchers say high saturated fat and low carbohydrates diet improves health factors such as
Researchers say most of the healthy individual's body system may tolerate diet with high-quality saturated fat as long as total energy consumption is not high. They say future studies should find out who should limit the consumption of saturated fat. The leader of the study is Prof Simon Nitter Dankel and the study findings were published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
