More Butter,More Happiness

Leadership Instincts

Consumption of butter may have some impact on the happiness of the citizens, according to a study of butter consuming countries.

Butter contains trace elements of casein that is known to improve happiness. The nations that report lower happiness such as Cameroon, Madagascar and Malawi have lower consumption of butter compared to Canada, Germany, Australia that have higher consumption of butter and reported higher level of happiness among citizens. However, these results are not uniform across the nations in the study. For example, Egypt fares lower in happiness scale with a score of 4/10 despite having a per capita consumption of 1 kg per year while Salvador fares better with 7/10 score inspite of lower butter intake by people.

Although, butter consumption seem to indicate higher level of happiness in majority of the countries it is not yet clear whether it is a correlation or the cause of the phenomenon.
