Sensationalisation of the actual study... as news outlets -always- do.

In the eighth chapter of his book Interpreting Biomedical Science, Ülo Maiväli presents some possible solutions to the perceived prevalence of cargo cult science. These proposed solutions are as follows: the integration, or the making whole or of science, a more philosophical approach to science, training that instills values of common ownership, egalitarianism and disinterestedness, and a system that distances scientists from economical temptation and scarcity.

:-D

I get that higher IQ people are procreating less than ones with lower IQ's. That doesn't mean we're all getting dumber, just a lower average IQ as a species.

There are lots of things that affect IQ beyond genetics. Nutritional value of food, good family environment, quietness, freedom to explore and be creative, healthy social life, physical activity, mental challenges, access to information, and many more.
