Dark chocolate may help diabetics control their cholesterol levels and put less strain on their sickness insurance policies.
Hull University tested the benefits of dark chocolate on a group of people with type two diabetes and found that cholesterol levels went down for some of them.
Professor Steve Atkin, who led the study, believes that the discovery could lead to diabetics having healthier hearts in the future. In turn, this may lead to them not needing to claim on their sickness insurance for cardiovascular illnesses.
However, Diabetes UK has rejected the claim, noting that the fat and sugar content in the chocolate outweighed the benefits. That said, they did remark that it would be "interesting" to see if they cholesterol-lowering element could be added to healthier foods.
