There was a significant linear correlation (r=0.791, P<0.0001) between chocolate consumption and the number of Nobel laureates. The good doctor says, "Switzerland was the top performer in terms of both the number of Nobel laureates and chocolate consumption. The slope of the regression line allows us to estimate that it would take about 0.4 kg of chocolate per-capita per year to increase the number of Nobel laureates in a given country by 1". His conclusion was that, "Chocolate consumption enhances cognitive function, which is a sine qua non for winning the Nobel Prize, and it closely correlates with the number of Nobel laureates in each country. It remains to be determined whether the consumption of chocolate is the underlying mechanism for the observed association with improved cognitive function".
