Average IQ declines worldwide

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Technology may be getting smarter, but are people becoming dumber?

Evidence suggests the IQs of people around the world declined over the last decade.

The University of Hartford released this research.

The research claims the larger the global population becomes, the less intelligent we will be, dropping by around eight IQ points by the year 2110.

Opinion is divided as to whether this trend really is long-term, but some researchers do believe humans have already reached our intellectual peak.

Others say the trend could be reversed if we improve our overall living conditions.
