The devil in the dark chocolate

Food has become a hot commodity in academic discussions. I enjoyed reading this Lancet editorial on the benefits of eating chocolate:

...dark chocolate that is rich in flavanols induced coronary vasodilatation and improved coronary vascular function in 11 heart-transplant recipients compared with patients taking a cocoa-free control chocolate. Other studies have also suggested that dark chocolate has cardiovascular benefits...the devil in the dark chocolate is the fat, sugar, and calories it also contains.
