Chocolate loving men who eat the sweet treat are in better health than those who don't like it, say docs at Imperial College London and Nestle. Over five days, a group of 22 healthy men( half liked chocolate; half did not) ate the same food, plus either chocolate or bread. Blood and urine tests showed the chocolate lovers processed fatty foods better and had lower LDL (bad) cholesterol.

Yes, indulging every once in a while may have long term heart benefits -- but when paired with a healthy diet. "You can't just eat chocolate while you sit on the couch and watch TV," says a researcher.
