Who needs a license???

I just need an excuse...

Any excuse will do...

But this is great...


Chocolate and Strokes


Not one, but two, yes two, recent studies have shown ....

UNDATED -- Just in time for Valentine’s Day, we’ve learned about another benefit to indulging in chocolate.
Two studies found people who eat chocolate once a week have a 25 to 45 percent lower risk of stroke.
It's likely because of flavonoids, which can have a positive effect on blood pressure.
But, doctors say that’s not a license to eat candy bars every day.

Hell yeah, it is...

It is much easier to remember to eat chocolate than to take my BP meds!!!

Yay for chocolate!
A more amazing product has never been known to man.

I am addicted to chocolate. Hardly a day goes by that I don't eat it. I assume that means I'll live a long time, and stroke free. I hope so, because I can't stop eating it. It's like heroin, or so I've heard.

I agree, Scott. Chocolate is the most important food group.

It is addicting, Mike. Not sure about the heroin thing, but I'll take your word for it:)
