Give it a try!
to Dutch researchers, cocoa can lower blood pressure
and risk of heart disease by 50 percent. The 15-year
study study, recently published in Archives
of Internal Medicine, examined cocoa's relationship
to cardiovascular health in 470 Dutch men aged 65 to
84 years. Men in the group with the highest cocoa consumption
were half as likely as the others to die from cardiovascular
disease. Their risk remained lower even when considering
other factors, such as weight, smoking habits, physical
activity levels, calorie intake and alcohol consumption.
The men who consumed more cocoa were also less likely
to die of any cause.
The researchers concluded that it was not just the
lower blood pressure that corresponded to lower
overall risk of death but credited antioxidants and
flavanoids found in cocoa. Flavanoids are a class of
healthy antioxidants found in plant-based foods. They
boost the functioning of cells, which lessens risks
of heart attacks, cancer, and lung diseases.
Gopinath, a life-long vegetarian, is proof that young
people can make global changes. At age 17, he became
the youngest CEO in the world, launching his own
multi-national corporation. Gopinath dreamed of
becoming a vet as a kid, but at 14 he became fascinated
by the Internet. His interest started with the creation
of his own web page but soon turned to the development
of a new company. In 2000, Gopinath started Globals
Inc., an IT service company that now boasts 11 offices
worldwide, more than 400 employees, and profits of
more than $1 million a year.
Not only innovative in business, Gopinath has a lot
to say about social issues as well. He spoke at a young
leaders’ conference last year about the importance
of viewing the world as a global community without political
borders. Gopinath is just as passionate about animal
rights. He recently sat down with PETA to discuss his
views on business, animal rights, and what young people
can do to revolutionize both.
