Linking Nobel Peace Winners and Chocolate Consumption

 

So we all know that chocolate is good for you right?  Well Forbes recently wrote an article linking Nobel Peace winners and chocolate consumption.  The article contains sayings like “Chocolate consumption has been documented to improve cognitive function” and ”geniuses are more likley to eat chocolate”.  Gee geniuses, you really you think so :) .

 

The article has some great facts and research supporting it.  See it here: Link between Nobel Peace Winners and Chocolate Consumption

Chocolate is not just good, it's good for you!

Below you will find a recent study published by Forbes showing the affects of dark and mild chocolate. This 10 year study revealed that men who ate at least a choclate bar a week were 17% less likely to have a stroke. These changes can mainly be attributed to the benficial affects of flavenoids.

For a Good Cause!

chocomize team member rally

Our Chocomize team member Philip is currently traveling around Europe spreading the word of Chocomize through goodwill.   With a car and a dream, Philip and his team will travel over 10,000 miles through Europe and into Asia.  The initial descent across Europe starts off in Great Britain.  From Britain, the team will travel across Europe in nothing but a customized car until they reach Mongolia.  Of course, the customized car will be decked out with its sponsorships from Chocomize.  That’s right, Chocomize is now applying our customization skills to cars, well sort of J.

 

Along their Journey into the unknown, the team plans to raise money for the Lotus Childrens Centere Charitable Trust (a charity that is dedicated to improving education for children in Mongolia by providing schools).  Through tales of adventure the team hopes to stir up enough commotion to raise over 15,000 towards the charity.  Here is one of their quit humorous tales from Bukhara, the capital of Uzbekistan:

Driving along happily due to the good condition of the asphalt (this road would still be illegally dangerous in European countries), we got stopped by the police. And Michel made a huge mistake: he actually stopped. Apparently speeding in Usbekistan is like speeding in Austria. The cops randomly choose a speed limit, the speed they think you were going, and the fine. In our case,100 dollars. It actually took all of Michel’s negotiation skills to adjust the fine to one pack of Turkish candy and one pack of Azerbaijani cookies.”

 

Chocomize wishes Philip’s team the best and hope they achieve all they set out to do.  To check out the charity the donations are going to click here: http://www.lotuschild.org/
