Can Organic Chocolate End World Conflict?

We're all familiar with the old cliche, 'You are what you eat.' But now a new study suggests that this cliche is true.

The study suggests that people who love eating sweets are not only perceived to be more agreeable, but may actually be more agreeable:

Students who rated their own personality as more agreeable also tended to have a stronger preference (than their less agreeable peers) for sweet foods and drinks. Among a different set of students, a stronger preference for sweet foods correlated positively with their willingness to volunteer their time, unpaid, for a separate unrelated study – considered by the researchers as a sign of prosocial behavior

What do you think? Do more sweets equal less conflict? Would the world be a lot better off if we ate more organic chocolate?
