Vegetarianism and intelligence

A recent study published in the British Medical Journal suggests that vegetarians are more thoughtful about what they eat and have a higher IQ. The study was based on more than 8,000 people whose IQ was measured at age 10 and later on at age 30.

The researchers found that the ones who said were vegetarians had an IQ of around five points higher than those who continued to eat meat as they grew up.

They concluded, "Our finding that children with greater intelligence are more likely to report being vegetarian as adults, coupled with the evidence on the potential health benefits of a vegetarian diet, may help to explain why higher IQ in childhood or adolescence is linked with a reduced risk of coronary heart disease in adult life."
