Health benefits? Anything "unhealthy" about cocoa powder?

I have heard that cocoa powder is SOO good for you. high in anti-oxidants and also has been shown to lower blood pressure.

So if you have any thoughts or info on cocoa powder, please type away!

(P.S. I buy the Camino brand - organic and fair trade. Pricey but worth it).

Better than regular cocoa powder (organic or not) would be raw chocolate (just the raw cocoa bean, powdered). You can see info on it, and buy it, at www.rawfood.com .
