A Mars a Day...

"CONFECTIONERY giant Mars today claimed its research on cocoa compounds has led to a breakthrough that could lead to new treatments for diabetes, strokes and vascular disease.

"The company was today announcing that it has discovered how to replicate the compounds, known as flavanols, which may lead to "a potential major new class of medications" to be developed by the pharmaceutical industry.

"Mars said it was already in "serious discussions" to license pharmaceutical companies as developers of these synthesised flavanols."
