Study: Link between chocolate and Nobel winners
An interesting study here -- researchers say how much chocolate a nation eats seems linked to the number of Nobel Prize winners from there.
Scientists say there is evidence flavanols in chocolate -- the same boosters in green tea and red wine -- can help slow down or even reverse age-related mental decline.
A study in the New England Journal of Medicine found Switzerland eats the most chocolate and has the most Nobel winners.
The U.S. is in the middle of the pack.
