Mother Could Be Source Of Child’s Low IQ


(Memphis) A child’s IQ could be related to what their mother ate during pregnancy.

most did not have enough iodine in their diet, which comes from seafood and
dairy products.

Children of mothers who lacked iodine went on to have lower scores on
IQ and reading tests.
