Earlier this week, we posted a study on the coffee-drinking habits of scientists. Moderate coffee consumption has been linked to reduced incidence of Parkinsons and type 2 diabetes. Now comes new evidence in favor of small indulgences: chocolate consumption is associated with improved cognitive function, and countries with the highest chocolate consumption also produce the most Nobel Laureates. It says so, right there in the New England Journal of Medicine. If chocolate isn’t your thing, try being male, 61, from Harvard, and shaving. Post hoc ergo propter hoc.
