 Red Wine and Chocolate may Not Actually Reduce the Risk of Heart Disease

Yet another study has dismissed claims that red wine and dark chocolate may reduce the risk of heart disease.

The study was presented by University of Leipzig Heart Centre's Steffen Desch at the European Congress of Cardiology in Munich who said that the recent study, which revealed that red wine and dark chocolate reduces the risk of heart disease by 37 percent, was flawed in nature.

Desch said that there was no concrete evidence that the study's findings were true and added that a more conclusive study, involving a control group that is given a substance that looked and tasted like chocolate, is required.

"Despite the studies I couldn't yet recommend dark chocolate as a prevention or treatment in cardiovascular disease. There's no strong evidence of a benefit and no clear explanation of an effective mechanism", he said.
