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.

The findings of a new study released in the New England Journal of Medicine that say if you want to increase your chances of winning a Nobel Prize someday, you need to eat more chocolate. They actually said that!
Here’s their ‘proof':
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.
They went on to say something about chocolate consumption and cognitive development, blah, blah blah, but all I read was – ‘CHOCOLATE MAKES YOU SMARTER!’
Did you read that Mom? Time now to start working on my acceptance speech.  I figure with all of the chocolate I’ve downed over the years, the Nobel folks should be calling soon.
See you in Stockholm!
