Positive Correlation Between Chocolate Consumption and Nobel Laureate Production

chocolateAccording to a study published in The New England Journal of Medicine, the more chocolate that a country consumes, the more Nobel laureates it produces:

The Swiss, of course, lead the pack, closely followed by the Swedes and the Danes. The U.S. is somewhere in the middle and the nation would have to up its cocoa intake by a whopping 275 million pounds (125 million kg) a year to produce one more laureate, said Franz Messerli, who did the analysis.

“The amount it takes, it’s actually quite stunning, you know,” said Messerli, who runs the hypertension program at St Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital in New York.

Obviously, we should eat as much chocolate as possible. Tonight, I will, for the good of my country, contribute. Dulce et decorum est pro patria edere.
