I’m seriously not making this up. A recent study concludes that kids with high IQs grow up to be vegetarians.
British researchers have found that children’s IQ predicts their likelihood of becoming vegetarians as young adults — lowering their risk for cardiovascular disease in the process. The finding could explain the link between smarts and better health, the investigators say.
I’m committing this to memory as ammunition for the next time I get interrogated by meat eaters.
But as awesome as this is, I’m boggled that the article never once mentions the ethical reasons for going veg. Don’t you think that maybe the reason many smart kids end up vegan is that they’re more likely to question where their meat comes from?
