FOOD TIPS-Some benefits of chocolate

strawberryDark chocolate contains lots of antioxidants that help the cardiovascular system by reducing blood pressure. Eating dark chocolate widens arteries and promotes healthy blood flow that can prevent the buildup of plaque that can block arteries. Eating dark chocolate every day reduces the risk of heart disease by 1/3. Flavonoids found in cocoa products have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-clotting effects that can reduce the risk of diabetes by improving insulin sensitivity. Chocolate may prevent memory decline.

Scientists at Harvard Medical School suggest that drinking two cups of hot chocolate a day may help keep the brain healthy and prevent memory decline in older people. The researchers said that hot chocolate can help preserve blood flow in working areas of the brain.

Whats inTips of the Trade

ahlaskaWhy Demand Fair Trade or Fair Labor Laws for our beloved Chocolate?
If you only knew?
In 2010 1.8 million children ages 5 to 17 were forced laborers on cocoa farms across the Ivory Coast and Ghana 40% were not enrolled in school and only 5% of them were paid to work. UNICEF projects that 35,000 of these children are victims of trafficking.
Fair Trade Certified chocolate says that no forced abusive child labor is used, but Fair Trade chocolate represents less than 1 percent of the $66 billion chocolate market.

Understanding what goes into producing our food can make a difference in what people choose to eat. You can do something. Make educated and conscientious choices will improve the over all health of the planet and all people.
Blessings to all
