According to a report recently published in the journal Practical Neurology, milk consumption can and should be linked to Nobel prizes.
Apparently, nations whose dietary preferences include both milk, and products derived from it (i.e. dairy and chocolate), have a tad more Nobel laureates than nations whose meals are mostly based on fruits, vegetables, fish and the like.
Prior to their stating that Novel prizes and milk are linked in this manner, the researchers who carried out this study compared and contrasted data concerning the per capita milk consumption in 22 countries.
Thus, they found that people living in Sweden consume about 340 kg of milk yearly. On the other hand, those in Switzerland gulp down an average 300 kg of milk within the same time frame.
As reported on EurekAlert
, Sweden has the most Nobel laureates per 10 million of its population (33), whereas Switzerland follows closely after (32).
“So to improve your chances of winning Nobel prizes you should not only eat more chocolate but perhaps drink milk too: or strive for synergy with hot chocolate,” the authors commented with respect to their findings.
