In this paper the paragraph Chocolate consumption in the EPIC-Norfolk cohort contains an error. The section which reads ‘Higher chocolate consumption was associated with trends towards a beneficial cardiovascular risk factor profile including lower age, lower BMI, lower waist/hip ratio, lower systolic blood pressure, lower concentrations of apolipoprotein B (apoB) and CRP, a lower prevalence of diabetes mellitus, and more physical inactivity (table 1).’ The final sentence should read ‘and less physical inactivity (table 1)’.
