A follow-up to yesterday’s veg post, a new study from Australia has shown that vegetarians have higher IQs on average than their meat-eating fellow citizens. From the article:

Nutritionist Rosemary Stanton says a vegetarian diet can’t enhance intelligence in itself, especially if people forgo the brain-building qualities of omega-3 fatty acids found in fish.But like Kennett, she says people with high IQs are likely to be thinkers.

“And thinkers are probably going to realise the ethical and health related benefits of not eating meat,” she says.

I don’t think you will convert meat-eaters to vegetarians by essentially calling them stupid, which in a way this article does, more than once. It’s all rather condescending and presumptuous if you ask me.
