Chocolate, wine and tea improve brain performance

( -- All that chocolate might actually help finish the bumper
Christmas crossword over the seasonal period. According to Oxford
researchers working with colleagues in Norway, chocolate, wine and tea
enhance cognitive performance.

The team from Oxford's Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics and
Norway examined the relation between cognitive performance and the intake of
three common foodstuffs that contain flavonoids (chocolate, wine, and tea)
in 2,031 older people (aged between 70 and 74).
