How can chocolate be a benefit?

Most of us have heard that "dark chocolate" is good for us.  Unfortunately, the concept of "dark or bitter chocolate" was marketed well, but the marketing covered up a huge misunderstanding.

Apparently, upwards of 50% of Alzhemier's diagnosed patients were found to be misdiagnosed when given an autopsy. (The Lancet, 1981; 1: 824-7).  Now not everyone gets an autopsy - in fact, most don't.  So I wonder what the real figures are.
