Health-Net: Did you know that scientists and philosophers such as Albert Einstein, Plato, Aristotle, Socrates, Confucius, Isaac Newton, and Thomas Alva Edison, they are a vegetarians? This led the researchers tried to find a relationship between the tendencies of eating vegetarian food with intelligence.

British Medical Journal published the results of the study, where researchers measured the IQ of a number of respondents at the age of 10 years, and then follow their progress until the age of 30 years. Existing data show that they are vegetarians, while the children have an IQ of about five points higher than the average adult who is non vegetarian.

Those who are vegetarians are also more likely to have jobs and a higher degree. This is due according to the researchers a diet rich in vegetables and fruits can improve the ability of the brain among other health benefits to improve intelligence.

Studies have also shown that vegetarian kids grow taller than a higher IQ than his school friends. The risk for heart disease, obesity, diabetes and other diseases also declined for the long term, commented PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), an institution that campaigning for animal rights.

However, the results of this research still raise questions. Are smart kids who decided to becoming a vegetarian as adults later, or did they become vegetarians in order to become more intelligent? Those with higher intelligence may be more to consider ethical issues, such as about animal welfare, as well as health benefits from eating lots of vegetables.
