    Hi Natalie,

    There has been quite a lot of research done in this field recently. When a child in school is performing poorly and behaving badly enough to be examined by an educational psychologist, an IQ test often reveals a higher than average IQ that is not being nurtured either intellectually or nutritionally. A change in diet from sugar-rich foods to protein-rich foods seemed to imrpove concentration and performance. Of course, their are other factors that must be taken into account such as whether improved performance is related to the child being given more attention or more challenging work to do. I think there is convincing evidence to suggest that not everyone performs to the level of their measured IQ due to a variety of factors, including poor diet.

    For more information, this website id very helpful:

    Sorry, I'm going completely bonkers, this post should have been addressed to caz, not Natalie. Sorry to both of you. Phew, I need a holiday.

      I wonder, what kind of a diet Frank Lee Morris (a high IQer from Alcatraz ) had in his school-days...

      Hi Jukka,

      No idea. Possibly a lot of fish?

        Hello Limehouse!

        Possibly that Japanese fish, that kills the customers, if the chef has failed?!

        All the best

          Jack was probably quite cunning and clued up, otherwise he probably would have been caught at the first murder. He certainly knew how to give the police and all those after him the run-around.
