Chocolate Research

According to this study in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition, "Based on scientific findings to date, acute doses of chocolate-derived procyanidins can induce transient cardioprotective effects in humans ... More research is needed to identify the amount and specific class or composition of flavonoids in cocoa/chocolate that exhibit beneficial health effects."

Sadly, there is no mention of where further research is being done and how I can sign up to eat chocolate for science.
