I'm currently reading Anticancer: A New Way of Life by Dr David Servan-Schreiber and on p.140 there's mention of another potential health benefit of eating chocolate -

Blueberries contain anthocyanidins and proanthocyanidins, molecules which are capable of forcing cancer cells to commit suicide (apoptosis). In the laboratory these molecules act on several cancer lines and are particularly effective against colon cancer. Other rich sources of proanthocyanidins are cranberries, cinnamon and dark chocolate.
