we sure are all so different there bill. and i only like good quality high cocoa content dark chocolate, not talking about eating candy bars from the convenient stores. i still have good blood pressure, no cloresteral problem, etc. i wonder how much red meat i should cut back, hate to give up all of something i like. perhaps a small steak once a month, or one good hamburger, not the grease trap places. your point of moderation is good always in life. i like good natural honey, but don't drink tea either. proably 95% of the time, i only drink water. david.
