Another Good Reason to Eat Chocolate

Recent research from the University of Reading in England demonstrates that consuming dark chocolate creates an improvement in vision two hours later. In the study (which I would love to have been a part of) subjects were given either dark or white chocolate to eat. Two hours later they were tested for visual contrast sensitivity, motion sensitivity and direction detection time. The dark chocolate participants improved while the white chocolate (not really chocolate, you know) had no change.

So now in addition to the improvements in mental processing and heart protection, dark chocolate also helps vision. I’m going to add more to my diet. How about you?
