Easter egg

The news that chocolate may be good for the heart and blood vessels has not only attracted attention in the Netherlands. American broadcasting networks have devoted massive attention to the research results of PhD researcher Brian Buysse and his supervisor Professor Daan Kromhout, chair of Public Health Research. A total of 74 radio and TV stations, including CBS and CNN, reported about the publication of the article in Archives of Internal Medicine, in which researchers suggest that four grams of cacao, the amount in a chocolate egg, can halve the chance of a heart attack.
