Chocolate, so good for so many reasons

Chocolate could help prevent tooth decay, according to scientists at Japan’s Osaka University and reported on at bbc.co.uk. The husks of the cocoa beans from which chocolate is made contain an antibacterial agent that fights plaque. These husks are usually discarded in chocolate production, but in future they could be added back in to chocolate to make it dental-friendly.

They concluded that the cavity-fighting action of cocoa bean husks isn’t enough to offset decay caused by chocolate’s high sugar content, however, so chocolate isn’t going to replace toothpaste any time soon. But this may be some comfort going into a chocolate themed long weekend….
