Frequently dismissed as cranks (怪人),vegetarians' fussy eating habits tend to make them unpopular with dinner party hosts and guests alike. But now it seems they may have the last laugh, with research showing vegetarians are more intelligent than their meat-eating friends.

A study of thousands of men and women revealed that those who stick to a vegetarian diet have IQs that are around five points higher than those who regularly eat meat.

The researchers, from the University of Southampton, tracked the fortunes of more than 8,000 volunteers for 20 years. At the age of ten, the boys and girls sat a series of tests designed to determine their IQs. When they reached the age of 30, they were asked whether they were vegetarian and their answers were compared to their childhood IQ score.

Around four and a half percent of the adults were vegetarian — a figure that is broadly in line with that found in the general population. However, further analysis of the results showed those who were brainiest(聪明的)as children were more likely to have become vegetarian as adults, avoiding both meat and fish. The vegetarians were also more likely to have gained degrees and hold down high-powered jobs. There was no difference in IQs between strict vegetarians and those who classed themselves as veggie but still ate fish or chicken. However, vegans — vegetarians who also avoid dairy products — scored significantly lower, averaging an IQ score of 95 at the age of 10.

Researcher Dr Catharine Gale said there could be several explanations for the findings, including intelligent people being more likely to consider both animal welfare issues and the possible health benefits of a vegetarian diet.

Past exponents of a meat-free lifestyle include George Bernard Shaw and Benjamin Franklin.

Promoting the cause, Shaw said, “A mind of the calibre(能力) of mine cannot drive its nutriment from cows.” While Franklin stated that a vegetarian diet resulted in greater clearness of head and quicker comprehension.

5 Such as runny noses, sore throats, nothing quite like the common cold to make you feel miserable. But experts believe that there is no link between cold weather and catching colds. 6

Internal Medicine expert, Dr Meenaksh i Jain of Max Hospital says, “One reason could be that people are likely to stay indoors, so the virus can spread easily.

7 ”

The common cold is a viral infection that can be caused by any of up to 250 strains of virus, the most common group of which are the rhinovirus that hit the nose.

8 “They are transmitted through the nose respiratory passages, by touch, and by contact with airborne particles that are created by sneezing or coughing,” says Dr Jain.

There is no cure for the common cold and antibiotics are of no help. However, there are some precautions which can help:

9 In this case, you can protect your hands from getting germs.

G. It’s winter and you have probably noticed germs are everywhere.
