Our article on chocolate and body mass index was the topic of the most emailed NY Times story that day, as well as the most emailed Medscape story. It was the leading news story from the University for that month (March), though it came out near the end of the month (Mar 26), besting the next biggest news story for the University that month by a factor of two; that story was also from our lab (on trans fats and aggression).

Our April 2010 article on chocolate and depression in Archives of Internal Medicine (Google: chocolate depression Archives April 2010) led to hundreds of news stories extending to at least 50 foreign nations per Google News – the runaway big story for our University that month, and had only descended to the number 2 health story on CNN a month later (with stories still being run in major media).
