 BBCs report of low IQ due to long-term vegetarian diet: misleading the public


BBC reports go back to our ancestors, thinking that eating meat makes us humanized or smarter, and ask whether vegetarians deficiencies in diet affect the thinking ability of vegetarians? Because it thinks that it is difficult for vegetarians to add nutrition artificially, and the brain health of vegetarians for a long time has always been a big problem in the field of health research. Although some vegetarians may take nutritional supplements, experts say that from the actual situation, it is not expected that all people will take nutritional supplements scientifically and reasonably.

Among them, Nathan corfners, a biologist at Oxford University, believes that the recent change in plant-based alternative diet is very worrying. Vegetarianism leads to B12 and iron deficiency, which undoubtedly affects your intelligence, he said This report not only displeased vegetarians, but also aroused discussions among microbiologists. Some scholars have published different voices, and they think their views are based on outdated research, which is refuted by a new study published in the British Journal of nature. The study believes that higher quality diet (including meat), improved cooking, and upright walking contribute to the growth of brain volume. In other words, primitive humans did not become intelligent by eating meat, but the change of human life style promoted the growth of brain. In addition, the lack of B12 is not only a problem of vegetarians, but also a common lack of B12 in the whole human population.
