    Drop In Mom's Thyroid Levels, Undetectable By Blood Tests, Tanks Child IQ

    I am posting this article mostly for the specific quote corroborating Peat's writing that thyroid blood tests are very unreliable and always have to be interpreted together with other "biomarkers" of thyroid function such as pulse, core temperature, muscle tone, reflexes, etc before a...

    Drinking Fluoridated Water During Pregnancy May Lower IQ (in Sons)

    Another study (the most comprehensive to date) that finds a strong link between pre-natal exposure to fluoride in drinking water and lower intelligence in the offspring.

    Fluoride At Levels In Tap Water Is As Toxic As Lead And Mercury For The Brain

    Finally some brave souls found the courage to publish a piece of truth.

    More Intelligent People Live Longer

    Ray has written many times about the links between metabolism and intelligence, and metabolism and longevity. The mainstream view if that both traits (intelligence and longevity) are genetic and unrelated. Previous studies that found correlation between intelligence and lifespan ascribed it to...

    Intelligence Expected To Decline In Higher IQ And Rise In Lower IQ People

    While the study is observational, it is important because it shows that IQ score is very malleable and depends on the environment more than anything else. I think Ray said in one of his interviews that he thinks the population of Western countries is getting progressively dumber, and he...
