Genetic Fitness May Explain Why Intelligent People Are Often Healthier

“UK and US researchers found that more intelligent people are often healthier, and suggest that this could be due to what they describe as a genetic ‘fitness factor’ whereby both body fitness (health) and brain fitness (intelligence) are influenced by genetic differences among people. The study was the work of scientists at the Institute of Psychiatry, King's College London, the University of Delaware, in Newark, US, and University of New Mexico, in Albuquerque, US. The paper is to be published in the journal Intelligence where an early corrected proof issue was put online on 28 April.”
