Of all the chocolate research out therethe most unabashed tribute to the “dark gold” has to be a study just published in one of the world’s most prestigious medical journals Drum rollplease: The higher a country’s chocolate consumptionthe more Nobel laureates it spawns per capitaaccording to findings released today in the New England Journal of Medicine And guess who leads the pack The Swissof courseclosely followed by the Swedes and the Danes The US is somewhere in the middle of chocolate consumption and Nobel Prize winners per capita To produce just one more laureatethe nation would have to up its cocoa intake by a whopping 275 million pounds a yearaccording to Dr Franz Messerliwho did the analysis “The amount it takesit’s actually quite stunningyou know” Messerli chuckled “The Swiss eat 120 bars – that is3-ounce bars – per yearfor every manwoman and childthat’s the average” The Nobel Foundation in Stockholm is in the midst of announcing this year’s winners It’s unclear whether the awards reflect chocolate intakebut previous laureates greeted the new research enthusiastically “I attribute essentially all my success to the very large amount of chocolate that I consume” said Eric Cornellan American physicist who shared the Nobel Prize in 2001 “Personally I feel that milk chocolate makes you stupid” he added “Now dark chocolate is the way to go It’s one thing if you want like a medicine or chemistry Nobel PrizeOKbut if you want a physics Nobel Prize it pretty much has got to be dark chocolate” Admittedlyboth researchers are jesting Messerli said the whole idea is absurdalthough the data are legitimate and contain a few lessons about the fallibility of science FREAK CORRELATIONS Messerliwho runs the hypertension program at St Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital in New Yorkcame up with the idea for the study after seeing a study that linked flavonoidsa type of antioxidants present in cocoa and wineto better scores on cognitive tests He began with industry data on chocolate intake in 23 countries and a list from Wikipedia ranking countries according to the number of Nobel laureates per capita “I started plotting this in a hotel room in Kathmandubecause I had nothing else to doand I could not believe my eyes” he told Reuters Health All the countries lined up neatly on a graphwith higher chocolate intake tied to more laureates The link was so strong it made a joke out of a statistic that virtually all studies in medical journals hinge on – the so-called p-value Technicallythis is the probability that a given result would be at least as “extreme” as the observation assumingin this casethat there is no correlation The p-value Messerli calculated was 00001 “This means that the odds of this being due to chance are less than one in 10000” he said “As physician scientists we live and die by p-valuesand here we have a p-value of a magnitude that is incredibleand unless you teach me otherwise it’s a complete nonsense correlation” “So” he added”how good are p-values at giving us certainty That is really some of the concern here” It’s not the first time scientists have found correlations that seem to defy all logic – and indeed may The number of storks across Europe has been linked to birth ratesfor instanceand sunspots have been tied to suicides in men By chance alonethese freak results are destined to find their way into mainstream medical journals as well “Scientists look at hundreds and hundreds of different thingsand every once in a while they will find two things that are surprisingly correlated with each otherand then they will say’Look at those very strong correlations and how important that is’” Cornell told Reuters Healththis time speaking seriously “But what they don’t do is tell you about all the different things that aren’t correlated” As a resultCornell said”you are going to very much underestimate the randomness of what you got” The other possibility is that the link is realbut meaningless “National chocolate consumption is correlated with a country’s wealth and high-quality research is correlated with a country’s wealth” said Cornell “So therefore chocolate is going to be correlated with high-quality researchbut there is no causal connection there” NO SHORTCUTS When it comes to chocolateseveral researchers have suggested dark varieties might benefit the brainthe heart and even help cut excess pounds In the conflict of interest section of his articleMesserliwho is of Swiss origin”admits to daily chocolate consumption” Despite the tongue-in-cheek tonehe saidhe does believe chocolate has real health effectsalthough he warns people to stay away from the sweeter kinds Many researchershoweversay the evidence is far from impressive at this point “Certainly I have never seen anything that has made me start adding (chocolate) to my diet” said Dr Yoni Freedhoffan assistant professor of family medicine at the University of Ottawa in Canada While he appreciates the jocular nature of the new reporthe said both the media and journals are guilty of being too gullible when it comes to cocoa “It’s a little bit disappointing to see such a regular occurrence of publishing data that really are not strong enough to be conclusivebut will be reported on effusively” Freedhoffan obesity experttold Reuters Health “Our never-ending quest for super foods and the perfect diet is what’s messing us up from a nutrition perspective” he saidadding that exercise and balanced meals cooked at home are keys to healthy living “We are looking for shortcuts to healthbut healthy living does require effort There really aren’t any remarkable shortcuts” Freedhoff added “When it comes to indulgenceswe should indulge in them because we enjoy them and without expectations of health

Google and Facebook in the huge and lucrative field of digital advertising But Verizon faces its own challenge in doing so given that it will be competing against a slew of other companies also looking to break in Verizon wants to become a strong third choice for advertisers by adding Yahoo’s popular sites and billion users worldwide to its own media business which includes AOL and Verizon’s home-grown go90 video service It can place ads on those sites and can also combine data from visitors to those sites with AOL’s ad technologies and sales teams and possibly also personal data from Verizon mobile customers such as location and other information in order to better target ads at individuals Also Read:Verizon Yahoo agree to lowered $ 448 billion deal The company did not reply to questions on how it might integrate mobile-customer data with the ad businessYahoo’s shareholders on Thursday approved the $45 billion sale of its key businesses to Verizon The deal is expected to close by June 13 The combination of AOL and Yahoo will cut 15 percent of its 14000-person workforce or about 2100 jobs said a person familiar with the matter who didn’t want to be identified Yahoo and AOL are “positioned to do better together than apart” Pivotal Research Group analyst Brian Wieser said But he is setting the bar low While Verizon talks of growth from the deal Wieser said “not declining would be a success Five years from now if the combined entity were the same size as it is today I would consider that to be successful” THE VISION Verizon sees online ads _ particularly targeted ads based on user data _ as a potential new source of growth as the wireless industry fights for US users with lower prices and other discounts Verizon has “essentially turned into a no-growth business” said CFRA Research’s Angelo Zino The ad business would be a “big deal” for Verizon if it goes well he said Also Read: Yahoo punishes CEO in latest fallout from security breakdown

and lifestyle coverage Like everyone else Oath will focus on video and mobile where consumers increasingly spend their time online Armstrong says he wants Oath properties to be a place consumers “come

but it has had no major hit apps Also Read:Yahoo admits forged cookies were used to access 32 million accounts Still AOL and Yahoo together provide a much-smaller No 3 in the US for advertisers looking to reach lots of people But even if Verizon’s goal is to just be happy at No 3 there are several much smaller players that also draw advertisers Snapchat is a niche hit with young people Amazon has an under-the-radar ad business that supports its e-commerce dominance Microsoft which owns LinkedIn is expected to grow its piece of the ad pie; Microsoft will be just behind the combined AOL-Yahoo in the US once the deal closes Twitter although it’s sorting out its ad business is a significant smaller player Globally several Chinese companies also rake in ad dollars And the combined company will also have to compete for people’s attention and not just with other services that rely on ad dollars to survive Popular sites like Amazon or Netflix also suck up time spent online said eMarketer analyst Martin Utreras “They’ve acquired these two dinosaurs and you kind of wonder can they be successful” Zino said That will depend on Verizon being able to convince marketers that they
