Nobel Prize Winners Are Chock-Full Of Chocolate

Nobel Prize winners consume reams of data in their chosen fields. And now a study suggests that consuming chocolate may take them one tasty step closer to the top of their profession.

When Dr. Franz Messerli of St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital and Columbia University in New York analyzed countries’ chocolate consumption and propensity for winning Nobel Prizes, he found a startling correlation. Countries that consume the most chocolate generally produce the most Nobel Prize winners.

Currently, the Swiss lead the way in both chocolate and Nobels.

Messerli believes his study provides further evidence that chocolate boosts brainpower.
