(NaturalNews) If you're pregnant, you may be happy to know that chocolate cravings may be good for you. New research shows morning sickness lowers the risk of miscarriage by almost 70 percent -- and eating chocolate daily also appears to lower the risk of miscarriage.

"Chocolate is a genuine healing food," said Mike Adams, a consumer health advocate and holistic nutritionist. "It helps prevent cancer, boosts liver function and improves moods and energy. The key, though, is getting real cacao, not the candied chocolate that's mostly sugar and milk fat. When shopping for a chocolate bar, look for a cacao content of 75 percent or higher, and always buy organic chocolate," Adams said.

Researchers from a new study said that chocolate also made pregnant women feel well enough to "fly or to have sex." When it came to morning sickness, the researchers said that the worse the nausea, the better.

In addition, the study revealed that there was no evidence that working full time had a worse effect on the risk of miscarriage than part-time work or staying at home -- even if the job involved standing for more than six hours day or heavy lifting. Women who stated that their jobs were stressful or demanding were significantly more likely to miscarry in the first three months of pregnancy, however.

The study also concluded that women were more likely to miscarry if the baby's father was older than 45, and women who were underweight when they conceived were 72 percent more likely to miscarry in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.

The lead author of the study -- Noreen Maconochie -- said "It can be a very distressing experience for women, and any advice on how they can improve their chances of achieving a full-term pregnancy is likely to be welcome." Maconochie then added that, the causes for the majority of miscarriages ''are not wholly understood'' -- and many suspected risk factors remain controversial or unproven.
