Breaking News: People Are Getting Dumber

Well here’s the least shocking news story of the year.  According to a new study, people just keep on getting DUMBER.



Some researchers out of Norway studied IQ test results from men born between 1962 and 1991.  And they found that every generation was DUMBER than the one before it by about seven IQ points.



Why?  When the researchers accounted for all of the possible factors, three things stood out:  The quality of education is getting worse . . . nutrition is getting worse . . . and every generation has more and more exposure to media.



There is ONE optimistic part of this, though:  People can improve their IQ, especially when they’re teenagers.



So your kids will have a shot at bucking this trend if you really focus on their education . . . their eating habits . . . and keeping them away from the eight billion types of media that are trying to grab their eyeballs.
