IQ of vegetarians and vegans

Have you tried the IQ test at "test the nation"? This is a survey to see how smart Canadians are. But anyone around the world can try it. If you haven't done so, why not check out the test here?

It's interesting to see that the vegetarian team in the UK test the nation IQ test conducted in 2006 score the highest of 113 compared to the rest of the four teams consisting of butchers, public schools, estate agents and footballer's wives.

Another interesting part of the website is that if you take a look at the "national results" section under the "results" tab, you will realise that vegans and vegetarians seem to have a lower IQ than meat eaters.
However, it is important to take into consideration the sample size. The meat eaters population is around 100,000 while the vegetarian and vegan population is comparably much smaller. A small sample size can make the result bias, and besides there are lots of other factors such as sleep etc. which can affect the results. So not to worry, vegetarians and vegans are not dumb :)

Also, I am quite sure that many meat eaters log in that thing as vegan and act stupid just to make things look worse for vegans.

The food choise is nothing but "preferred" and it doesn't mean a person is actually a vegan even if he/she chooses vegan diet from that test
