Women overtake men in IQ tests for the first time in 100 years (but is it all down to multitasking?)

• http://www.dailymail,

It is a finding certain to be hotly disputed – at least among half the population. According to the latest research, women are brighter than men.

For the first time in IQ testing, psychologists have found that female scores have risen above those of men.

Since IQ testing began a century ago, women have been as much as five points behind, leading psychologists to suggest embedded genetic differences.

But that gap has been narrowing in recent years and this year women have moved ahead, according to James Flynn, a world-renowned authority on IQ tests.
‘In the last 100 years the IQ scores of both men and women have risen but women’s have risen faster,’ said Mr Flynn. ‘This is a consequence of modernity. The complexity of the modern world is making our brains adapt and raising our IQ.’

The reason for this is that there aren't any men (almost). With few exceptions, all there are, is, women, more feminine women, and boys. The reason for this has to do with "estrogen poisoning" from the estrogen-like chemicals that leach out of plastics, into whatever substances the plastics contain... like water, soda pop, fruit juice, and just about any other foods - especially liquids - that come packaged in plastic.

Google (or otherwise search) on the words: "estrogen in plastic."
