There's some more good news for dark chocolate lovers. A new study shows drinking a cocoa-rich drink, or eating a chunk of dark chocolate every day, can help brain health in older adults.

The study found people who ate dark chocolate regularly saw improved memory, language, thinking and judgement.

Doctors still warn people to be careful about changes to their diets. The study was published in the journal Hypertension.
