Parasites cause low IQ

A widely publicized study found a correlation between countries with low IQ and parasite infections. It actually found a greater correlation with skin color, but that analysis was suppressed because of the lack of a causal model. There are probably correlations with sunlight and tropical weather as well. I guess these researchers can put politically incorrect data in their papers as long as they explain it away somehow.
