Cocoa Extract Linked to Heart Health

Mars, Inc., maker of M&M’sSnickersTwix, and various other chocolaty confections, is partnering with the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute to study whetherflavanols in cocoa can boost heart health and help prevent heart attacks and strokes. Previous studies indicate that cocoa flavanols improve blood pressure, cholesterol, artery health, and other cardiologic measures.

He determined that microwaves emitted from his magnetrons had cooked the candy bar and confirmed this theory by testing it on popcorn. Raytheon patented Spencer’s microwave oven in 1945 and put it on the market in 1947. What was the first food to explode in a microwave? More… Discuss
