Chocolate consumption key to Pipes family intellectual achievement?

Reader comment on item: Polish Telephone Books Reveal My Family's History

Submitted by Dave, Jul 11, 2019 at 16:31

I've been reading that chocolate improves blood flow to the brain and consequently improves memory and other cognitive faculties. This may be one reason Richard Pipes was a key thinker in the strategy to bring down the Iron Curtain, which proved no match for the Prince Polo Wafer. It's possible that chocolate consumption has altered the Pipes family genetic structure and that these abilities have been passed down to subsequent generations, like Daniel Pipes maybe. I just hope that the loss of the chocolate factory has not diminished the family's enthusiasm for munching on chocolate as we need that keen light to keep burning and leading the way.
