Got Correlation?

And now for your daily correlation versus causation alert.

Countries whose people drink more milk win more Nobel prizes, according to research published Tuesday in Practical Neurology, a serious British journal. It builds on research last year in the New England Journal of Medicine that found a nearly identical link between chocolate consumption and Nobel success.
This is good to know, because I drank chocolate milk every day for lunch from first grade through high school. Of course, it was government milk, so the benefits may not translate to me.
