It may seem merely a cliche born of centuries of educated people straining their eyes in dimly-lit libraries, but new genetic research suggests those who wear glasses really are more intelligent

Researchers at the University of Edinburgh analyzed the genetic data of more than 44,480 people. They found that, overall, those who were more intelligent were nearly 30% more likely to have genes indicating that they require reading glasses than those who scored poorly. The research also linked higher cognitive ability to genes known to play a part in better cardiovascular health. The results are based on the most thorough investigation of intelligence genes of its kind to date. The research team examined 148 genomic regions related to better cognitive function, including 58 that have not previously been reported. They said that the results could help understanding of the declines in cognitive function that happen with illness and as people age. Because of the study’s design it not possible to say why there is a genetic correlation between intelligence, poor eyesight and cardiovascular health. However, Dr Gail Davies, of University of Edinburgh's Centre for Cognitive Ageing and Cognitive Epidemiology, who led the analysis, said: "This study, the largest genetic study of cognitive function, has identified many genetic differences that contribute to the heritability of thinking skills. The discovery of shared genetic effects on health outcomes and brain structure provides a foundation for exploring the mechanisms by which these differences influence thinking skills throughout a lifetime." Those who participated in the study had all taken a variety of thinking tests which were summarized as a general cognitive ability score. All had genetic testing that examined their DNA and none of the people had dementia or a stroke.

Interesting article, Average Joe. No wonder I don't wear glasses.

Many of our own White American people can’t even see and understand when the circumstances which lead to their destruction are happening, and it is happening in many different ways right in front of their eyes. They do not comprehend the gravity of all of the different measures being enforced against us in ever-tightening ways, and they don’t recognize them for what they are – steps to their own destruction and the destruction of our nations. Our people had best awaken before it is too late. It has happened elsewhere in the past, with many of the same techniques in use, but those mostly White people had ignored it then, too, before it happened to them. Allowing chaos and confusion to overcome you will prevent you from seeing who your enemies really are, and will allow their efforts undertaken against you to take you by surprise, and will keep you isolated from needed help from anyone else.

Remember that we have many – very many, of the progeny of the same communist jewish hoodlums who did these things – and they have been working stealthily from inside our country, now for many years. Their modus operendi is to manage from the top downward, removing the individual from their grassroots control, a control which was once an honored part of our American system. Their media and MSM are not going to tell you what they are doing.
