 Reasons Behind Health Benefits of Chocolates and Olive Oil Examined
A new study currently being conducted in the United States is focusing on the health benefits of antioxidant substances found in dark chocolate, coffee, red wine, olive oil and other food supplements.
The American Chemical Society, the world's largest scientific society, is holding a symposium on those substances during its 246th National Meeting and Exposition.

Reports in the symposium involve substances that consumers know best as 'antioxidants,' and that scientists term 'phenolic derivatives.'

These ingredients, found naturally in certain foods and sold as dietary supplements, have been linked with health benefits that include reducing the risk of heart disease and cancer.
