We have heard about the benefits of chocolate for quite some time now. A new study highlighted the positive aspects of chocolate and went as far as to conclude that a chocolate bar a day could prevent a heart attack. A bar of chocolate a day can cut the risk of heart disease and stroke by an amazing 39 percent, The Sun reported Tuesday. A 1.76 ounce (50g) treat has the greatest effect, according to Dr Brian Buijsse.And dark chocolate is better than milk or white because it has more cancer-busting anti-oxidants and more cocoa, which helps lower blood pressure.
Dr Stuart Kincaid keeps a close eye on the possibility of prospective patients having an elevated blood pressure. Often times patients may have not had a physical so therefore they are not aware of their blood pressure. Surgery can not be performed if the patient does not have their blood pressure under control. Patients seeking consultation with Dr Stuart Kincaid for elective procedures like rhinoplasty,facelift, or abdominoplasty are sometimes surprised to learn that their blood pressure is central to their overall health. When the blood pressure is too high complications are much more likely.
