nother reason to love chocolate: Men who indulge in the sweet treat may actually be lowering their risk of having a stroke, according to a new Swedish study. More than 37,000 men were followed for 10 years, and those who consumed the most (about one-third of a cup of chocolate chips each week) had a 17 percent lower risk of stroke than men who had little to none. The study was published in the journal Neurology.
