chocolate will make you a better person

well… sort of.  I’m not sure how I missed the article in the New England Journal of Medicine from October 2012, but the authors show a linear correlation between a country’s chocolate consumption per person (per capita) and the number of Nobel Laureates per 10 million population.

Proof that chocolate will make you a better person (*that’s not a true statement as this is a correlational study.  My biostatistics and epidemiology professors would cut me if I didn’t mention that correlation does not imply causation).

So how does your country rank?
