Scientists in North Carolina may have just given us more excuses to eat chocolate.

Research has shown that certain compounds found in dark chocolate, cacao powder, muscadine grapes, and green tea could block certain Covid-19 symptoms.

Studies were conducted to see how the Mpro protein in viruses reacted to compounds in plant foods with anti-inflammatory properties and showed certain functions of viruses were disabled.

No human trials have taken place as of yet, but additional research has been proposed.

Do you eat anything special to keep yourself healthy? What have you done to avoid Covid-19?
