Episode 328: A dementia update you will hopefully remember

Episode 327: Chocolate – evidently very beneficial, or is it?

In episode 327, Mike and James do a delicious podcast around the evidence for chocolate. We look at the cohorts and the RCTs that have looked at the effect of this heavenly food on outcomes like mortality, cardiovascular disease, blood pressure, depression and acne. The results make us happy and smile.
