Interesting. I think this result could be explained by the benefit of eating added sugars, as opposed to drinking them. https://academic.oup.../2/411/5261249 

 

The chocolate study corrects for the effect of added sugars, but does not consider their source -- sugar-sweetened beverages vs. treats/topping -- which have opposite effects on longevity. Since chocolate is primarily a treat, this distinction could reduce all-cause mortality for chocolate eaters.

 

Does that make sense?

Happy to see this, because I eat at least 8 servings of very. very dark chocolate, cacao powder, or cacao nibs per week, probably more like 10 or 12 servings. The only thing I am worried about is the heavy metal content of most chocolate.

It's the theobromine.

Chronic administration of theobromine inhibits MTOR signaling. Much like rapamycin.
