The recent study says that Intelligent and smart children are more likely to become vegetarians later in life. A Southampton University team found who were vegetarian at 30 had recorded five IQ points more on average at the age of 10. Researchers were able to figure out the reason for this being that vegetarian diet was linked to lower heart diseases and obesity rates. Men who were vegetarians had an IQ of 106, compared with 101 for non-vegetarians. Women who were vegetarians had an IQ of 104, compared with 99 for non-vegetarians.
