      That's what I had for breakfast yesterday. And dessert is spelled with two S's. Anyway, if you had actually read the article you would have learned that they ate the chocolate on average about twice a week.

        I think this study merely tells us that fatter people are less willing to admit in a questionnaire that they eat lots of chocolate.

        I enjoy dark chocolate in moderation. Milk chocolate and chocolate candy bars aren't even food.

              Hearing the story on the radio today made me want to rip my hair out. Come to think of it, there could be a headline there: "brainless reporting of correlation studies causes rapid hair loss in NPR listeners!"

                You are too funny.

                Responsible reporting is an oxymoron these days. There is no such thing anymore.

                    I can't see anything more there than a correlation and a guess.

                    But the more frequent chocolate-eaters had smaller BMIs, a ratio of height and weight that's used to measure obesity.

                    What explains the effect? ...
                    Then we get the guess.

                    Well, here's another: maybe it's just that people who don't grab some chocolate occasionally grab something else -- snack cakes? coke? -- instead. Maybe it's what you don't eat.
