    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Punches to the head lower IQ, apparently.

    Maybe I should quit this punching thing.

    Bah, you weren't using those braincells anyway.

    Seriously though, what are they defining as a "serious" injury?

    According to article:

    "The data they studied took into account all fighting-related physical injuries."

    Not sure how a rib injury lowers your IQ. Seems to be a study that has found a statistical correlation between fighting injury and subsequent decrease of IQ, not a causation.

    It's probable that teens who get into fights and are injured in fights also do other things that impact themselves developmentally, such as drugs, missing class, or watching TapouT.

    Such an significant drop in IQ does not seem plausible for me. Sure the brain of adolescents is a bit more sensitive but just from fighting once or twice? These are street fights so most of them donít even know how to punch properly.

    The only way I could imagine a significant drop of IQ is when the victim is on the ground and gets repeatedly kicked in the head or similar stuff.

    Anyway, so they found some correlation. So what?
    Is it really surprising that people that get into street fights end up more stupid than the ones that stay at home and study?
    Do we need to make bullshit theories about it?

    Now if they really want to scare people about punching they could just reference Ali.

    I wasn't totally clear on the research methods, but isn't it possible that this is the result of people with lower IQs getting into more fights?

    Oh god, I love these scientific studies. It also shows that the average IQ drops with age significantly between the ages of 13 to 31. Theories have been broughtup on why that is but the study was flawed in the beginning only pointing to one source. So let's see how they skewed these facts.

    (Wanna bet that these guys should have been punched in the head a few times after they did this study?)

    That's the first thing I thought. Even with before/after tests, IQ is so murky, I don't know how you could claim conclusive results.

    For example, IQ compares one to one's peers. Fine, this keeps youngsters from being categorized as deficient. Well, if your development plateaus early, you fall behind your peers, you get into fights because you're not socializing properly, and your IQ tests lower.

    They're going to have to demonstrate physical evidence of brain injury to prove anything, IMO.

    I'd like to go on record folks that "if" you actually took a real IQ test it would take between 3-5 hours to complete. It consist of several different areas of exams and takes a few days to calculate the results. Anything else and you took a novelty test. In order for these facts to hold true. You would have to do a proper IQ test on a subject, have that subject get hit in the head a few times over a few years and recalculate that IQ test weighing in all factors that could corrupt the outcome.

    So yeah.
