Dark Chocolate and Heart Health


       Researchers have known that chocolate -- especially dark chocolate -- is good for the heart. Now, they know why. Besides tasting good, researchers have found that dark chocolate protects against heart disease in two ways: it returns movement to hardening arteries. It also keeps white blood cells from gathering on blood vessel walls. Both of these conditions can lead to plaque formation. Plaque can block the flow of blood, causing heart disease.
        研究人员们了解到:巧克力,尤其是黑巧克力,是有益于心脏的。并且现今 ,他们也了解到了各中原因。黑巧克力除了味道浓郁可口之外,它也以两种不同方式抵抗着心脏疾病。其一:它能给硬化动脉提供动力。其二:防止白细胞聚集在血管壁上。以上两个糟糕的情形都是会导致斑块的形成,然而斑块却也正是会堵塞血液流通,从而引发心脏疾病的物质。


     Researchers from the Netherlands reported the findings. The Dutch researchers studied 44 middle-aged men who were considered overweight. The men ate 70 grams of both dark and milk chocolate every day over two periods of four weeks.
      来自荷兰的研究人员们报导了这项发现。他们研究观察了44个被认为超重的中年男人,他们被要求在4个星期内每天超过两个时间段吃70克的黑巧克力和牛奶巧克力
