Public health experts from the University of Glasgow were able to obtain the childhood mental ability scores of over 8,000 men and women in their 30s, and found -- much to their surprise -- the higher IQ, the higher the likelihood of developing a drinking problem. The correlation existed even after factoring out socioeconomic status, and was stronger in women than it was in men.(Incidentally I don't have "a drinking problem." I have drinking without problems, happily for me).
The researchers declared the results were "unexpected" and feel the need for "further examination."
