We've heard about the benefits of dark chocolate, but this takes it to another level if it works.

It won't be nearly as much fun as eating candy bars, but a big study is being launched to see if pills containing the nutrients in dark chocolate can help prevent heart attacks and strokes.

The pills are so packed with nutrients that you'd have to eat countless candy bars to get the amount being tested in this study, which will enroll 18,000 men and women across the U.S.

Too bad the study is not eating chocolate bars... I would sign up for that study with a quickness!

I'll take the candy bar. And then maybe take the pill.

Or, take the pill first and then eat a candy bar for desert.
