BATON ROUGE, LA – A prospective, observational study out of Baton Rouge reports intelligence is inversely related to reproductive capacity.  Investigators quote compelling data after following a local cohort of 2,000 people over 40 years of life.  The trial began in 1970, and physicians followed a cohort of age matched children through adulthood with the primary end point being number of offspring produced.

Subjects were carefully screened for IQ at ages 6, 12, and 25.  At the trial’s conclusion, the dumbest 25% of the population had produced 60% of the offspring.  When the authors included the grandchildren of the original subjects, that same 25% of the population accounted for 80% of newborns over this 40 year period.

Ecologists are concerned that lack of intelligence is actually a form of evolutionary fitness in a world where stupidity is routinely rewarded.
