Vegetarians Are Smarter

This has got to stop. First they said it was the curry, now it’s the vegetables that allegedly make you smarter.


A study of 8,000 people published in the British Medical Journal reported that vegetarians recorded 5 IQ points higher than non vegetarians. Well, actually, what the researchers Catherine Gale, Ian Deary, Ingrid Schoon and David Batty concluded is, “Higher scores for IQ in childhood are associated with an increased likelihood of being a vegetarian as an adult.” Meaning that smarter people tend to be vegetarians.

Now doesn’t that also mean that vegetarians are smarter? Well if you are wondering, you aren’t smart, or vegetarian. Whatever!
