Psychopaths will brag about anything.
I hope his kids fail too, fail to breed.
Just because he’s white and a man, people trust him with money.
Stop making business decisions on stereotypes, meritocracy is BLIND.

Getting the dregs of any country is bad.
White people are not made equal to one another either.
Glorifying someone because of their skin colour is downright anti-social. There is zero need for immigration, we must be self-sustaining wherever possible. Self-loathing from the fake right because Muh Polish r superior is just as cringe-worthy as some SJW fawning over a Syrian Muslim.
Letting someone like this in harkens to a pro-Europe bland culture that never existed. Europe has never been united because it’s impossible, Empires DIE.
Magic Dirt doesn’t apply to other whites and genetic distance shows difference at a subrace level too.
Eastern Europe is a shithole. They have the r-selected birthrate and low child investment to prove it. Importing people from those places will attract opportunistic dregs outsourcing their childcare costs to the ‘fellow whites’.
Because they love us so much… as long as we give them free shit our own people are entitled to.
Gibs to whites is immoral too.
Thou shalt not steal. So much for Christianity.
This muh fellow white bullshit is cucky, libertarian and anti-national.
Bare minimum, consider IQ and criminality. Never fund the outgroup’s reproduction.
Oppression from Fellow Huwites is a bitter pill to swallow.
Eastern Europe didn’t tighten up its standards over the centuries like the West and it shows, they deserve the comparatively inferior system they have now. No excuses for them either. If they really loved their country so much, they wouldn’t infest ours like a white chinatown (cultural invasion, replacement) and eat the seed crop like hungry rats aboard the Titanic (pillaging, post-invasion).
Oh but muh cultural enrichment, right?
Why does the Guardian love them, that tells you everything you need to know….
Why is mugging, stabbing and burglary up in London but DOWN in Poland? [see end]
The so-called red-pills have blinkers on for Muh Fellow White crime and it’s sickening.
Nationality of prisoner by crime, 2016:
Theft 1 Romania, 2 Lithuania, 3 Poland

Yes, our fellow whites are so caring for us!
It’s all non-white, right? Wow, you’re so red-pilled! All white immigrants are magically saints!
They’re totally not playing you and your bullshit sense of white loyalty. Which has never existed in all history, it’s been nationalism or bust.
For a reason.
Because a Polish bloke raping your sister is so much better. The whites only cucks disgust me. How deluded do you have to be?
I don’t wanna live near foreign thieves and sex pests, I don’t care if they’re so white they’d glow in sunlight! Advocating for them purely on the morally meaningless grounds of pigment is a betrayal of the domestic people, who can move nowhere else. It’s still genocide, of the people and culture, it’s still a replacement. It’s also a betrayal of native men, whose work is stolen, directly, by people with de facto MORE options.
No work, no money, no family. It’s directly impacting our birth rates.
These cuckoo egg pregnancies are not one of us, genetically, culturally, criminally and they will leave (abandoning us to debts they ran up with their welfare) when the economy contracts, predictably (r-types).
Covering for criminals is emboldening them to get worse.
Accusations: 1st place Poland, 2nd Romania, 3rd Lithuania, 4th Ireland, 8th French, 9th Italian, 10th Portuguese. Yes, famous non-white countries, and I’m sure the criminals here love the people enabling it because Muh Whites make civilization, right?
London is so civilized now! Walk through any Polish-dominant area alone at night and see how safe you feel, among your fellow white! It’s totally like the 50s, surrounded by fellow Anglos! They’re just like us! Diversity is our strength! We need them!
We all know what they’re teaching their kids. Giving your kid a crowbar is not civilized behaviour.
Many become builders to know how to break into said structures. A lot case a joint while working on it, they have a reason to be seen on the property later and they can keep prices low as bait because of pawn sales. It’s easy to become a burglar when you know who’s living alone, who’s on holiday, what security they have and you made a spare key.
We must dispel this hilarious myth that all white people are civilized, it’s shit.
Why trust someone with a foreign passport to secure your home, when they can hop on a plane today? Rich people don’t hire Trojan builders, it’s known what they really are. The builders can also be scouts for valuable items, related to the burglar. House parties are also used for scouting.
Muh white ppl = civilization!
like Spain? Portugal? Greece? France? Romania?
Even Hitler didn’t believe that and he was on some serious meds.
Believing this will ruin us, like it ruined Rome.
Yes, the women are hot, so what? If you remove the trowel make-up most of them look weird (manjaw, with African broad, fat-lipped mouths) and plain (beady eyes, large nose). From the neck-down the average is okay but the problem is comparing to fat people, so they’d always look better obviously. Compared to healthy body weight anglos or West Europeans generally, they have blatant peasant limbs (stocky) and squat torsos, no waist on the women unless starved. Athletic boyish figures when young, prone to obesity past 30. You can get on a plane to Poland any time you like, that’s no reason to import the whores of eight welfare kids on the rest of us. The hot ones get thrown into modelling and out of normal reach anyway, they peak at 15. Come back 8 years later and they’re a mess. They age like Polynesians, if there’s anything there, a strong bloom from about 15-25 then age like festering shit on the sidewalk in summer. R-types peak sexually earlier.
Nordic women are the real natural beauties of the region, no make-up required (especially the Kardashian eye make-up, that’s how you spot fug). Oddly, they’re not queuing up to live here. Nor become breeding sows on our taxpayer teat. Funny that.
We must be honest about the myriad anti-social ways immigrants are screwing us, even when it makes us uncomfortable. No free passes, that is a weakness.
Let’s face it, there are shitty white people too and they’re a bigger threat, when you think about it.
Unless sex crimes in a foreign nation are suddenly okay when a white guy’s doing it?
2018: The number of thefts, robberies and acts of vandalism have decreased in Poland, a daily reported.
Such offences dropped by 22,000 incidents in the first half of 2018 year on year, the Rzeczpospolita daily said citing statistics released by Polish police headquarters.
They’re not giving us their best.
No wonder Poland’s so happy.
Criminal, white-collar and road offences totalled 404,000 in the first half of this year, decreasing by 29,000 year on year.
Thefts numbered 47,000 from January to June 2018, falling by 7,200 year on year.
Car thefts reached 4,500, dropping by 600. Robberies and acts of extortion decreased by nearly 1,000. The police also recorded fewer robberies with the use of a weapon or other dangerous instrument.
Andrzej Borowiak, spokesperson for the police force in the central Wielkopolska province said: “We are glad to see a drop in incidents such as assaults or property damage.”
“In the Wielkopolska province the crime rate fell over 10 percent, which is a significant shift,” he added.
Meanwhile, in the eastern Lubelskie province the crime rate dropped 16 percent, Renata Laszczka-Rusek, spokesperson for the local police, told Rzeczpospolita.
If Poland’s getting so nationalist, when are they taking their people back?
Nobody asks this. Because they’re weak.
Brain drain is a myth, duh.
Over 350 per 100k here, closer to 30 per 100k in Poland.
Did their criminals just magically disappear?
I am only salty for good reason, after reading a lot of data.
Get on a plane and fuck a Polish whore if you want, don’t bring them here to rob me and then have the brass cheek to complain about immigrants. I used to think they were nice too, they ALL do that nice routine until they take over an area. Then they seem to turn but the appeasement (r-selected) was always fake.
Look at the stats out there. We’re being played.
Figure it out now, or when your life could depend on it during a global recession.
The biographies of 280 scientists indicate that the distribution of their age at the time of their greatest scientific contributions in their careers (age–genius curve) is similar to the age distribution of criminals (age–crime curve). The age–genius curves among jazz musicians, painters and authors are also similar to the age–crime curve. Further, marriage has a strong desistance effect on both crime and genius. I argue that this is because both crime and genius stem from men’s evolved psychological mechanism which compels them to be highly competitive in early adulthood but “turns off” when they get married and have children. Fluctuating levels of testosterone, which decreases when men get married and have children, can provide the biochemical microfoundation for this psychological mechanism. If crime and genius have the same underlying cause, then it is unlikely that social control theory (or any other theory specific to criminal behavior) can explain why men commit crimes and why they desist.
the same underlying cause being extremes of IQ
obviously they’re not the bloody same
But yes, marriage has a good effect on some people. And?
Should we reward criminals with breeding and punish genius genes?
Tesla’s highest achievement we know was done before aged 30. Clearly, something isn’t right here.
Makes more sense as a sexual selection strategy to attract a mate.
High IQ – prosocial.
Low IQ – antisocial.
The creeps are wrong again.
Teenage motherhood has been associated with a wide variety of negative offspring outcomes including poorer cognitive development. In the context of limitations of previous research, this paper assesses the contemporary relevance of this finding. In this study we investigate the long-term cognitive status (IQ) among 21 year adult offspring born to teenage parents using the Mater University Study of Pregnancy- a prospective birth cohort study, which recruited all pregnant mothers attending a large obstetrical hospital in Brisbane, Australia, from 1981 to 1983. The analyses were restricted to a sub-sample of 2643 mother-offspring pair. Offspring IQ was measured using the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test at 21 year. Parental age was reported at first clinic visit. Offspring born to teenage mothers (<20 years) have -3.0 (95% Confidence Interval (CI): -4.3, -1.8) points lower IQ compared to children born to mothers ≥20 years and were more likely to have a low IQ (Odds Ratio (OR) 1.7; 95% CI: 1.3, 2.3). Adjustment for a range of confounding and mediating factors including parental socioeconomic status, maternal IQ, maternal smoking and binge drinking in pregnancy, birthweight, breastfeeding and parenting style attenuates the association, though the effect remains statistically significant (-1.4 IQ points; 95% CI: -2.8,-0.1). Similarly the risk of offspring having low IQ remained marginally significantly higher in those born to teenage mothers (OR 1.3; 95% CI: 1.0, 1.9).
In contrast, teenage fatherhood is not associated with adult offspring IQ, when adjusted for maternal age. Although the reduction in IQ is quantitatively small, it is indicative of neurodevelopmental disadvantage experienced by the young adult offspring of teenage mothers. Our results suggest that public policy initiatives should be targeted not only at delaying childbearing in the population but also at supporting early life condition of children born to teenage mothers to minimize the risk for disadvantageous outcomes of the next generation.
The small but significant decrease in offspring IQ combined with other challenges often faced by children of teenage mothers may contribute to increased risk of poor educational performance and intergenerational transfer of psychosocial and health disadvantage.
aka poor fitness among r-types
corroborates forensics in the history of anglos
Their bodies haven’t finished developing.
Not in Argentina, not ever.
How many centuries before we get this?
related to prior “UBI” topic
We live already in a high IQ (code- High-tech) society.
Any low IQ populations, white or not, will fail.
This is not a maybe, if or but.
It is inevitable.
Make investments of time and money based on that fact.
This is as much a natural law as gravity making stuff go down. The technical term is a dysgenic shift, as a tragedy of the commons impair the overall functioning of the organism, civilization.
Do not waste your time helping the low IQ, especially if they hate you, unless you’re related, and even then – it would make more logical sense to help yourself so you’re in a stronger position to help them later, when they actually really need it.
Let the idiots fail, they will regardless and pretending to care or help will just allow them to blame (or possibly sue) you. The Left’s now public unpopularity is largely due to compassion fatigue.
Only work to protect the culture and things the future ideally needs and wants. Don’t dawdle.
Their failure (check national IQs to check your expectations) will be chalked up to isms and ists and ‘bigots’ oppressing them (the same bigots who never invited them here, and they’re free to leave to greener pastures) when it’s the natural failure in a meritocracy (and no, quotas may stem the tide but make the water level bigger once the dam finally bursts).
Nobody is guaranteed success but this cult of equalism and equality of outcomes is weakening those already on the edge, the cusp of idiocy. Do not let it weaken you nor the character of any you care for.
2 economic facts based on evolutionary biology;
You CANNOT replace humans like interchangeable cogs. [Globalization is wrong and doomed.]
You CAN, however, replace the low IQ with machines. [The Industrial Revolution says, hello?]
We can survive this, but we have to be clever. Expose missionaries/”activists” wherever you find them, the globalist outgroup-helping model might already have killed us. Christians have no obligation to help most of the (non-Christian, thereby anti-Christian/Satanic) world, including CHINOs. Christian rules for Christian folks. God also said not to engage in wrath, nor obstruct his Will and “helping” in many cases the historic enemy to embolden them against us (zero sum) might be considered wrathful treason.
Western success was, in fact, White IQ success, with higher IQs across the board in many nations than we have now (even among just whites, a lot of stupids are breeding because they’re irresponsible). This dilution effect, combined with increased pressure on infrastructure and demand for common goods i.e. housing, will reduce the standard of living without corrective measures (aka nothing less than MASS deportations) in short order, due to population density.
Population density is DEATH.
It is the death of r-selection.
Resources are always scarce, especially in the colder, more tribal climes of the West. Whites and our high trust genetics are simply kin on a smaller, more select level than overall race. That is likely amenable to change if Europe needs to rally together post-crop failure.
See the places of global pop density? Don’t fucking move there.
People will also hemorrhage out of those areas the more serious the situation looks. Of those residing in the West to plunder and pillage, they are unlikely to go all the way home so… that’ll be fun. Normalcy bias will make the low IQ think they can wait out the storm/s.
Encourage meritocracy, prepare for minor food shortages (remember – shipping would be the first thing to go with an economic slowdown) and do not engage in pathological altruism.
There is no downside to following this advice.
Ten years of food is ridiculous but 6 months? Do-able. A year, like the Mormons is the goal. Supplementing your food and saving money buying in bulk is better than nothing.
It takes the average human 3 weeks to starve, longer if infrequently fed.
I do not know, haven’t the foggiest what could kick this off, maybe lots of little, seemingly innocuous things – but nobody does. That’s why it’s a black swan – our current system of 150 years is crumbling and that’s never happened before. Stay safe. Look at population charts.
Could be 1 year, could be 3. All I know is I’m glad I don’t live in Asia, especially with all these weather events. California too. They have in common prostitution, greed, deceit and infanticide – do those incur God’s wrath?
If a population will not cull itself and limit reproduction in their homeland, Nature steps in. A lot of virulent disease is coming from Asia and it’s actually riskier for us than African ones due to population density and commonality of air travel (which most Africans can’t afford).
This has been Global(ist) Threat 101. Let globalization (and multiculturalism) go quietly into that good night. I’ll believe it’s over ten years later. Don’t be drawn into it or out by it – false positives of recovery are a classic historical way to draw out the prepared or savvy… to kill and rob them.
“You’re not being replaced!”
The rate of population growth in the UK has increased in recent years. In 2015 the population increased by 513,000 people (0.8%).
Population increases come from immigration and natural growth (the number of births minus the number of deaths. The total number of immigrants coming into the UK is offset by the number of people who emigrate from the United Kingdom each year (see British people abroad below) to reach a final population growth total for the year.
No, total immigration doesn’t minus, net is minus. Why not report total?
2018: net immigration 258
TOTAL 2018: 602
Boomers should be exit taxed heavily for escaping the mess they created.
back to top
About one third of the UK population increase in recent years is a result of natural population growth – where the number of people being born in the UK is higher than the number of people dying every year. The remaining two thirds of the population increase is the result of net immigration into the United Kingdom.
About half of the people coming to the UK in 2015 were from the European Union. Recent data indicates that there are approximately 3 million EU citizens living and working in the UK. This equates to 5% of the UK population. The other half came from non-EU countries.
That’s …6 million.
If you have another country’s passport, you shouldn’t be allowed to vote.
And that’s just official, not illegal.
And new, not second+ generations in the multicultural colonies.
Immigration is a contentious topic in the UK, with many people believing that it is too high.
Because of this immigration was one of the most important topics during the recent referendum about whether the UK should remain in or leave the European Union (often referred to as the Brexit referendum.
The office for National statistics records data on ethnicity in each census. In 2011 it reported that the largest ethnic group in the UK was White (87.17%), followed by Asian or Asian British (6.92%) and Black (3.01%).
There’s no such thing as “Asian British”, like there’s no such thing as a hyphenated American. You’re either American or not. Asia is not in Britain. Race/ethnicity is not citizenship.
Most white people in Britain are descended from a number of different ethnic groups, not all of which are indigenous to the British Isles.
non sequitur but nice way of saying ‘invaders’
and they’re not from different forensic groups at all, same race, same subrace/s
They were all THE SAME RACE.
This heritage reflects the history of the British Isles, which has been invaded on a number of occasions.
The black population in Britain has roots going back to the 15th and 16th centuries.
No, it doesn’t. That isn’t a root. Africa is a root.
Phylogenetic tree root of blacks is Africa.
The British Asian population also has a long history which began in the 17th century.
No. It began in Asia, where they belong.
Plus, that isn’t a long history, that’s a blip.
Diversity + Proximity = War
The 2011 census showed that Christianity remains the dominant religion in the UK. The number of people who reported that they were Christians in the UK was 37,583,962, which is 59.49% of the total population. The number of people who report that they are Christian fell by more than 12% between 2001 and 2011, from 71.58% in 2001.
The next most common responses were either no religion (25.67%) or religion not stated (7.17%). The number of people who gave one of these answers increased from 23.18% in 2001 to 32.84% in 2011.
Well, guess it was nice knowing them.
And this is outdated.
Islam is the second most commonly reported religion in the UK with 4.41% of the population.
49,808,000 English 1st language speakers.
546,000 Polish locusts.
273,000 Punjabi 3rd place.
Arab 7, French 8, Chinese 9.
Note: Indigenous languages such as Welsh and Scots do not feature on this list as they were more commonly reported as second languages.
As this chart from the ONS shows, the proportion of people in London whose first language is not English is far higher (around 20%) in London than it is in the rest of the country.
According to the 2011 census, the most commonly spoken non-indigenous language in the UK was Polish, with 546,000 native speakers in England and Wales – approximately 1% of the population.
From one nation, the locusts of Europe. The chavvy breeder scum of the white race.
And that’s just speakers, not other Poles. Because they’re all such nationalists and Poland is so great, right?
They hate immigrant invasion the MOST.
source: Americans who never lived with them.
If they’re so proud of Poland, could they fuck off back there?
If they’re defending the West, can they do it from Poland?
But diversity is our strength! At least low IQ places like Poland aren’t fucking over the country permanently…
A recent study by the OECD reported that the UK had the lowest literacy rate of any developed nation. It reported that around 20% of English 16-19 year olds have low literacy skills.
This is backed up by a report from the UK’s Literacy Trust, which explains that 16% of adults in England are “functionally illiterate”. This means that their literacy is below what is expected of the average 11 year old.
And they can vote. 1 in 6 illiterates.
Millions of them.
We call them Labour voters, the name is ironic.
They should be forced into a school for adults until up to speed. As long as it takes.
87 billion per year down the shitter. Because education works on genetic IQ…. right?
According to Eurostat, the United Kingdom is the fourth most densely populated country in the EU
At the time of the last census, in 2011, the population of Greater London was 8,173,941.
By 2015, Greater London’s population had increased to 8,673,713.
An extra half a million on record, (probably including emigrants, which it shouldn’t).
The UK’s ageing population puts increasing pressure on the country’s public services and economy.
MYTH Dead people don’t strain services.
Fertility rate in the UK has also fallen over the past 50 years, from 2.95 children per woman in 1965 to 1.82 children per woman in 2014.
Good, pre-WW levels. Sustainable, among ourselves.
This is below the replacement rate (2.33 children per woman across the world, but 2.0 children per woman in industrialised countries) but higher than the EU average fertility rate which in 2014 was just 1.58 children per woman.
If you don’t force men to marry, no kids.
We live in the marriage-free world.
But yes, EU and other socialism is literally dying.
And, finally, at the bottom of the pyramid we can see the effects of a dip in the UK’s birth rate during the early 21st century, followed by an boost in recent years.
Non-native births, discounted.
Race is not citizenship. A passport entitles you to nothing from the outgroup.
aka most of the Thing behind the Flynn effect.
Vegans are deficient.
We assessed the association between maternal iodine status and child IQ at age 8 years and reading ability at age 9 years. We included 21 socioeconomic, parental, and child factors as confounders.
Our results show the importance of adequate iodine status during early gestation and emphasise the risk that iodine deficiency can pose to the developing infant, even in a country classified as only mildly iodine deficient. Iodine deficiency in pregnant women in the UK should be treated as an important public health issue that needs attention.
After adjustment for confounders, children of women with an iodine-to-creatinine ratio of less than 150 μg/g were more likely to have scores in the lowest quartile for verbal IQ (odds ratio 1·58, 95% CI 1·09–2·30; p=0·02), reading accuracy (1·69, 1·15–2·49; p=0·007), and reading comprehension (1·54, 1·06–2·23; p=0·02) than were those of mothers with ratios of 150 μg/g or more.
The present comments are restricted to the role of maternal thyroid hormone on early brain development, and are based mostly on information presently available for the human fetal brain. It emphasizes that maternal hypothyroxinemia – defined as thyroxine (T4) concentrations that are low for the stage of pregnancy – is potentially damaging for neurodevelopment of the fetus throughout pregnancy, but especially so before midgestation, as the mother is then the only source of T4 for the developing brain.
Despite a highly efficient uterine-placental ‘barrier’ to their transfer, very small amounts of T4 and triiodothyronine (T3) of maternal origin are present in the fetal compartment by 4 weeks after conception, with T4 increasing steadily thereafter. A major proportion of T4 in fetal fluids is not protein-bound: the ‘free’ T4 (FT4) available to fetal tissues is determined by the maternal serum T4, and reaches concentrations known to be of biological significance in adults. Despite very low T3 and ‘free’ T3 (FT3) in fetal fluids, the T3 generated locally from T4 in the cerebral cortex reaches adult concentrations by midgestation, and is partly bound to its nuclear receptor. Experimental results in the rat strongly support the conclusion that thyroid hormone is already required for normal corticogenesis very early in pregnancy. The first trimester surge of maternal FT4 is proposed as a biologically relevant event controlled by the conceptus to ensure its developing cerebral cortex is provided with the necessary amounts of substrate for the local generation of adequate amounts of T3 for binding to its nuclear receptor.
Don’t worry, the brain damage was genetic anyway.
Women unable to increase their production of T4 early in pregnancy would constitute a population at risk for neurological disabilities in their children. As mild-moderate iodine deficiency is still the most widespread cause of maternal hypothyroxinemia in Western societies, the birth of many children with learning disabilities may already be preventable by advising women to take iodine supplements as soon as pregnancy starts, or earlier if possible.
This editorial reviews the impact of iodine deficiency (1) on thyroid function in pregnant women and neonates and (2) on the neurointellectual development of infants and children.
All degrees of iodine deficiency (mild: iodine intake of 50-99 µg/day, moderate: 20-49 µg/day, and severe: <20 µg/day) affect thyroid function of the mother and the neonate as well as the mental development of the child. The damage increases with the degree of the deficiency, with overt endemic cretinism as the severest consequence. Maternal hypothyroxinaemia during early pregnancy is a key factor in the development of the neurological damage in the cretin. Selenium deficiency combined with iodine deficiency partly prevents the neurological damage but precipitates severe hypothyroidism in cretins.
Iodine deficiency results in a global loss of 10-15 IQ points at a population level and constitutes the world’s greatest single cause of preventable brain damage and mental retardation.
An entire Standard Deviation, no big deal!
Supplements won’t help, you’ll OD.
Iodine is a micronutrient that is essential for the production of thyroid hormones. The primary source of iodine is the diet via consumption of foods that have been fortified with iodine, including salt, dairy products and bread, or that are naturally abundant in the micronutrient, such as seafood. Recommended daily iodine intake is 150 μg in adults who are not pregnant or lactating. Ingestion of iodine or exposure above this threshold is generally well-tolerated. However, in certain susceptible individuals, including those with pre-existing thyroid disease, the elderly, fetuses and neonates, or patients with other risk factors, the risk of developing iodine-induced thyroid dysfunction might be increased. Hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism as a result of supraphysiologic iodine exposure might be either subclinical or overt, and the source of the excess iodine might not be readily apparent.
Iodine is critical to human health. It forms the basis of thyroid hormones and plays many other roles in human biochemistry. While the thyroid gland contains the body’s highest concentration of iodine, the salivary glands, brain, cerebrospinal fluid, gastric mucosea, breasts, ovaries and a part of the eye also concentrate iodine. In the brain, iodine is found in the choroid plexus, the area on the ventricles of the brain where cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is produced, and in the substantia nigra, an area associated with Parkinson’s disease.
Iodine is essential to normal growth and development. Iodine deficiency in utero and during growth can result in cretinism, a condition of severely stunted physical and mental growth due to prolonged nutritional deficiency of iodine or from untreated congenital deficiency of thyroid hormones (hypothyroidism). The condition is characterized by short stature, delayed bone maturation and puberty, infertility, neurological impairment and cognitive impairment ranging from mild to severe. Iodine deficiency also causes goiter, the gradual enlargement of the thyroid gland. Both conditions have led to public health campaigns of iodine administration in many countries. The addition of iodine compounds to table salt or water represents the first attempt to provide nutrient supplementation via “fortification” of common foods.
At least they won’t have grandkids.
China paper here:
IQ so unreal it tracks brain damage.
The level of iodine nutrition plays a crucial role in the intellectual development of children. The intelligence damage of children exposed to severe ID was profound, demonstrated by 12.45 IQ points loss and they recovered 8.7 IQ points with iodine supplementation or IS before and during pregnancy. Iodine supplementation before and during pregnancy to women living in severe ID areas could prevent their children from intelligence deficit. This effect becomes evident in children born 3.5 years after the iodine supplementation program was introduced.
And now… we wait.
