  • Wanted: volunteers to eat chocolate for a year

    Matthew Weaver
    Wednesday 22 July 2009

    It is not an offer from Willy Wonka but a serious study into the benefits of dark chocolate. Researchers from the University of East Anglia are looking for 40 post-menopausal women with type 2 diabetes willing to eat two pieces of Belgian chocolate a day for 365 days in return for having their health tested. Dr Peter Curtis, leading the study, explained the project is the second stage of a study looking at whether the compounds can help reduce heart disease. He said: "A successful outcome could be the first step in developing ways to improve the lives of people at increased risk of heart disease."

    Chocolate study seeks volunteers

    Wednesday, 22 July 2009

    A university study of potential health benefits of dark chocolate is looking for new volunteers.

    Forty post-menopausal women with type 2 diabetes are needed to test whether flavonoid compounds in chocolate can reduce the risk of heart disease.

    The study's first volunteers ate chocolate every day for a year and will soon be tested for any health benefits.

    The University of East Anglia (UEA) in Norwich said its research had now entered a "really exciting stage".

    Dr Peter Curtis, of the UEA's School of Medicine, said: "Our first volunteers are about to return for their final visit to see if the markers of heart health - such as blood pressure and cholesterol levels - have changed.

    "A successful outcome could be the first step in developing new ways to improve the lives of people at increased risk of heart disease."
