Like in a song, let's do the Cocoa... just my sense of humor! DRINK YOUR COCOA people.. Hot Cocoa fights disease better than WINE, yeap! and you can't get drunk on COCOA! Just ONE CUP of HOT COCOA contains about 611 mg of PHENOLS and 564 mg of FLAVONOIDS, TWO POWERFUL Antioxidants that PROTECT against cancer and heart disease. By comparison a glass of Red Wine has 340mg and 163 mg, respectivey, of these compounds, while GREEN TEA has 165 mg and 47 mg and BLACK TEA has only 124 mg and 34 mg ================================================== = BONUS: Although chocolate also is very high in antioxidants , it is high in saturated fat. The equivalent amount of COCOA contains less than 1 gram (g) of saturated fat. Let's do the RUMBA let's do the COCOA

Most hot cocoa though is loaded in sugar which causes disease. The only chocolate that is healthy would be extremely dark (85% or higher cocoa content). Its not easy to find and is an aquired taste since its quite bitter.
