Like we needed another excuse to eat that Hershey's bar. Turns out, dark chocolate and other foods high in magnesium could help ward off one of the most dangerous cancers, according to new research.
Researchers at Indiana University say eating foods high in magnesium may lower your risk of developing pancreatic cancer.
In the study, published in the British Journal of Cancer, researchers discovered those who ate less magnesium had a higher risk for developing the cancer. The researchers say age, gender or body mass index didn't alter how the magnesium in the body affected the cancer.
