Yay! I’m a happy girl 🙂
I luuurve dark chocolate. In fact, I usually eat 85% cocoa dark chocolate, anything less than 70% tastes like dirty water to me. Now, that I have found out that dark chocolate provides some natural sun protection – well, I can see my dark chocolate consumption going through the roof!
Dr Benabio’s post on dark chocolate having protective properties against damaging UV rays is worth a read (naturally it is supported by research). This is brilliant, a natural sun protection that tastes great!
Essentially, regular consumption of chocolate high in flavonols offered some protection against sun’s damaging ray. Couple with sunscreen and protective clothing/headgear and your set!

Me, I’m off to get my regular dosage of dark chocolate… tee hee!
