Gut Bacteria transforms dark chocolate in the gut, it's actually beneficial to the heart, at least in small !$%*!$%*!$% There are other claims of health benefits for dark chocolate but I am not going to look them up, takes too much time. Like anything tho, 3 pounds of dark chocolate is easily excessive and probably would still produce more decremental health effects than good effects.
A friend of mine wound up in the ER. They asked him if he'd eaten anything. "Just some chocolate truffles my wife made, while I was working."
How much did she make? "Five pounds."
How many did you eat? "All of them."
bswargo et al: that's not how Dilbert's tie works; failure to straighten it is the normal failure condition; it straightens after rare successful events; I'm sure that someone will provide the link presently.
