'I think we still need a randomised controlled trial of flavanol-rich chocolate but in the meantime it would seem that a little bit of chocolate is good for you. Don't get carried away though as those in the highest quartile only consumed 7.5g a day which is equivalent to a small square. A 100g bar has around 500 calories and a fair bit of that is sugar. So everything in moderation.'
