Fjool Posted December 18, 2006 Report Share Posted December 18, 2006 Had to wonder at this from the BBC News: High IQ link to being vegetarianIntelligent children are more likely to become vegetarians later in life, a study says. Men who were vegetarian had an IQ score of 106, compared with 101 for non-vegetarians; while female vegetarians averaged 104, compared with 99 for non-vegetarians. So far, so good. However... a bit later in the article: There was no difference in IQ score between strict vegetarians and those who said they were vegetarian but who reported eating fish or chicken. Uhm... lol? Not particluarly intelligent to confuse vegetables and chickens if you ask me. Doesn't this nullify the entire study?
