According to a recent survey, air pollution can affect short-term memory and IQs of babies. A survey has been done in the US proving that pregnant mothers living in a polluted environment will have babies with IQs 7 points lower than an ‘average’ baby.
Peanuts Daily transposed the study to Beijing in China. Indeed, the pollution that the American mother was exposed to was nothing compared to Beijing’s pollution. We remember the Beijing marathon smog made runners to get lost and that the Giant Panda population is decreasing because of the pollution.
According to the pollution registered, we found out that newborn Beijing babies will have an IQ 46 points lower than a baby born in Fiji. The world IQ average is 100 and you are considered as a genius when your IQ reaches 140-150. If you are born in Beijing, you are considered to be a genius when yours IQ reaches 100.
We went in Beijing streets and asked Ms. Sophie Tang, a random Beijing walker, her thoughts about this discovery:
I does sit away on that thing. Item would trust babies in Mao. Red books sure you to stay on army.
Total gibberish. The discussion continued but we did not get anything Ms. tang was saying. She probably lives in Beijing for a long time.
According to the music and IQ study, you also have to remember that your IQ can also depend on the music you listen.
One advice: if you want your baby to be a genius, raise it near a nuclear plant and make him listen to Korean pop songs.
