Well most of the scientists were vegetarians arguably.. and apparently it did seem that somehow most smart men and women turned out to be vegetarians! But now there is a scientific study to prove that! A vegetarian diet, indeed, gives you a better IQ! No wonder people around me seem so foolish 😉
A study of thousands of men and women revealed that those who stick to a vegetarian diet have IQs that are around five points higher than those who regularly eat meat.
Writing in the British Medical Journal, the researchers say it isn’t clear why veggies are brainier – but admit the fruit and veg-rich vegetarian diet could somehow boost brain power.
The researchers, from the University of Southampton, tracked the fortunes of more than 8,000 volunteers for 20 years.
At the age of ten, the boys and girls sat a series of tests designed to determine their IQ.
When they reached the age of 30, they were asked whether they were vegetarian and their answers compared to their childhood IQ score.
