Countries that drink milk have produced more Nobel laureates.

There is no scientific evidence which suggests that a country's milk consumption has no correlation to the number of Nobel prizes won.

There is no scientific evidence which suggests that a country's milk consumption has no correlation to the number of Nobel prizes won.A research published by the New England Journal of Medicine in 2012 drew a comparison between the annual per capita milk consumption in a country against the number of Nobel laureates per 10 million population. This was based on a 2007 study which showed how chocolate consumption was associated with increased brain activity.

The theory of milk and Nobel laureates is not based on any scientific evidence, but on the numerical coincidences that the data compiled in 2007 seems to be showing. Moreover, data compiled over the next years does not provide the same result as the data did in 2007.
