"Our task must be to free ourselves . . . by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty."

"Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances of survival for life on earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet."

- Albert Einstein

Didn't we all already know that vegetarians, in addition to being super-sweet and totally awesome, are also smarter than everybody else?

But now science has proved it:

High IQ link to being vegetarian

Intelligent children are more likely to become vegetarians later in life, a study says.

A Southampton University team found those who were vegetarian by 30 had recorded five IQ points more on average at the age of 10.

i object.

the bbc report suggests that smartness begets vegetarianism, not the other way around.

it's not the same to say that vegetarians are smart people as it is to say that smart people are vegetarians.

i'll draw you a venn diagram later.
