The Society and Chocolate

I learned an interesting fact today, that the value of the world’s scientific journal publishing industry is worth about the same as the UK spends on chocolate each year – apparently £2 billion.

The other interesting fact if you are thinking of renewing your Society membership is that statistically people live longer if they belong to professional and learned Societies, although I suspect that might not be the case if you are one of the people principally responsible for the UK’s turnover in chocolate!
