Eating My Way to a Nobel Prize
Did you notice there were more Nobel Prizes handed out this week? Couldn’t tell you what for or who the winners were, but one thing did catch my eye.
Researchers found a surprisingly strong correlation between chocolate intake per capita and the number of Nobel laureates in certain countries. The higher a country’s chocolate consumption, the more Nobel laureates it creates.
All the countries linked up neatly on a graph, with higher chocolate intake tied to more laureates. Switzerland was the top performer for both the number of Nobel laureates and chocolate consumption. The Swiss eat 120 3-ounce bars on average per year, followed by Sweden and Denmark.
