Chocolate for a year?

It sounds like a dream come true for many, but scientists from the University of East Anglia are looking for female volunteers who are willing to eat chocolate every day for a year.

The researchers want to find out whether chocolate can cut the risk of heart disease and need 40 women to help. Some will have to eat specially designed extra strong chocolate and others will eat regular chocolate as a placebo.

As the saying goes, if you think it’s too good to be true, it probably is. The criteria means that many willing volunteers won’t be eligible – you have to be menopausal and under the age of 75, with type two diabetes. But if you fit that description, then what are you waiting for?!
