Daily 'Dose' of Dark Chocolate Might Shield the Heart. Another study supports the antioxidant goodness of dark, but not milk, chocolate. There's more sweet news about chocolate and your health: A new study suggests that eating a bit of dark chocolate each day may cut the odds of heart attack and stroke in high-risk people. Dark chocolate is rich in flavonoids, antioxidant substances known to have heart protective effects. Until now, the potential benefits of dark chocolate on heart health have only been examined in short-term studies.

New study links excessive amounts of vitamin D to onset of atrial fibrillation. While previous studies have linked vitamin D deficiency to an increased risk for cardiovascular disease, new research at the Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute shows that too much vitamin D can lead to the onset of a dangerous heart condition known as atrial fibrillation. Vitamin D, which is synthesized by the body with exposure to sun, is used to regulate calcium and phosphate concentrations in the blood and is essential for growth and development, cellular health, and bone remodeling, a process where mature bone tissue is removed from the skeleton and new bone tissue is formed. In regions where sun exposure may be limited, supplemental vitamin D may be required to maintain normal blood levels. The exact amount of vitamin D to achieve normal levels is unknown and usage varies in different regions and communities, which can cause problems, say the researchers.

No Link Found Between Dairy Consumption and Heart Attack Risk. The saturated fat in milk and other dairy products has a bad reputation, but new research has failed to find a link between dairy intake and cardiovascular disease in a large study. Scientists hypothesize that other nutrients in dairy products have a protective effect on heart health that counteracts the effect of the fat.

Eating Fruits and Vegetables Lower Risk of Death from Heart Disease. A new large scale study, examining the diet and health of hundreds of thousands of people, has shown that a diet rich in fruits and vegetables is linked to a lower risk of dying from a common form of heart disease. Although a healthy diet may correlate with other behaviors or lifestyle factors that cause the reduction in heart disease deaths, doctors say that increasing the amount of fruit and veggies we consume is essential to good health. Fruit and vegetable intake reduces risk of fatal coronary heart disease.

Moderate Dark Chocolate Consumption Linked to Lower Heart Failure Risk. According to a study, middle-aged and elderly Swedish women who regularly ate a small amount of chocolate had lower risks of heart failure risks. The nine-year study, conducted among 31,823 middle-aged and elderly Swedish women, looked at the relationship of the amount of high-quality chocolate the women ate, compared to their risk for heart failure. The quality of chocolate consumed by the women had a higher density cocoa content somewhat like dark chocolate by American standards.
