Chocolate Hearts Yummy and good medicine?

        Chocolate and cocoa powder
        are derived from beans that
        contain hefty quantities of
        natural antioxidants called
        flavonoids. In recent years,
        research has correlated
        consumption of tea, red wine,
        and other foods rich in these
        compounds with a reduced risk
        of cardiovascular disease.
