From psychologytoday by way of indigoskynet: Keen Cuisine: The Flavor of Cleverness
Dark chocolate has the highest cocoa content, and candy manufacturers are engaged in a virtual arms race to turn it into a health food by boosting its flavanol power even beyond nature's largesse. Not only does milk dilute the overall cocoa content of chocolate, it increases saturated fat levels too, countering cocoa's blood-borne benefits. Still, studies have found that even the fats in dark chocolate may help lower cholesterol levels—and preliminary studies suggest that they may even aid diabetics by boosting insulin sensitivity.

Sweeet. ;)

Every time I hear claims like this, I'm reminded of KFC's attempt at marketing its menu as health food.

I think the "chocolate is healthy!" recommendation right now is to go for 60% or better, and not so much that the sheer calories you're consuming start to give you trouble.

I know I'm taking advantage. :)
