Good news for vegetarians! If you’re a vegetarian then you’re probably smarter than the average person according to some research. It turns out that people who opt for a meat free diet tend to be better able to confront the reality of the modern diet (which is that we don’t need to kill animals to live a healthy human life). We have seen studies like this for years that say vegetarians are smart, that they are happier, and that they live longer.
There’s no better time than now to eat more veggies and less meat.
Another scientific theory,Â Savanna-IQ Interaction Hypothesis,Â supports the correlation between a vegetarian diet and higher intelligence. Satoshi Kanzawa, an evolutionary psychologist, suggests the ability toÂ change personal habitsÂ in reply to challenges in the world is strongest in people with higher empathy and intelligence levels.Â There isÂ a strict linkÂ between a personâ€™sÂ ability to easily adapt their habits to â€œevolutionary novelsâ€ and higher IQ.
Intelligent people cope more easily with situations that did not exist in the ancestral environment (such as modern dietary options). While our ancestors had toÂ face constant food scarcity, we often face the opposite problem: abundance. Intelligent people are more likely to makeÂ wiser choices about what they eat, considering both their own health and animal welfare issues.
