  • In 2007, the Linus Pauling Institute conducted a research review that led to a surprising conclusion: Though flavonoids are antioxidants, their function within your body is entirely different. It appears that your body treats flavonoids like foreign compounds, and tries to get rid of them. In the process, it produces enzymes that also fight mutagens and carcinogens, thereby boosting its defenses against cancer. Dark chocolate and other flavonoid-rich foods might fight cancer after all, just not in the way previously thought.
