Does eating a few squares of dark chocolate a day improve blood pressure?

April 3rd 2019
"Eating a few squares of dark chocolate every day 'improves your blood pressure in just one month'," is the overoptimistic headline in the Mail Online. Unfortunately for chocoholics, the study involved just 30 people, so the results are not particularly robust. And all 30 were young healthy adults, so we do not know whether there would be any benefit for older people with a confirmed diagnosis of high blood pressure.
