Brits evolving to be thick and poor
Britons are evolving to be less well-educated and poorer because smart rich people are having fewer children, a new study has suggested.

Researchers have found that natural selection is favouring people with lower earnings and poorer education, with the next generation likely to be one or two percentage points lower in educational attainment than today.

Evolution also appears to be favouring people with a high risk of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), major depressive disorders and coronary artery disease, as well as younger parents and people with more sexual partners.

Prof David Hugh-Jones, lead researcher from University of East Anglia’s School of Economics, said: “Darwin’s theory of evolution stated that all species develop through the natural selection of small, inherited variations that increase the individual's ability to compete, survive and reproduce.

“We wanted to find out more about which characteristics are selected for and against in contemporary humans, living in the UK.”

Economic theory of fertility

The team looked at data from more than 300,000 people in the UK, taken from the UK Biobank - a long-term project investigating the contributions of genetic predisposition and environmental exposure to the development of disease.

Each participant is given a polygenic score – an estimate of their genetic liability that roughly predicts a person’s health, education, lifestyle and personality.

They then mapped the score to their number of siblings and children over two generations to see how the populations are changing over time.

They found that scores correlating with lower earnings and education were linked to having more children, meaning those people were being selected from an evolutionary perspective.

In contrast, scores that correlated with higher earnings and education were linked to having fewer children, meaning that they are being selected against.

Researchers said the findings corresponded to the economic theory of fertility, which was developed more than 60 years ago and which found genes linked to high earnings predicted fewer children, because children brought a bigger relative loss of wages.

Flynn effect

Prof Hugh-Jones said that although the effect was small, it could grow over multiple generations.

“Will we all become poorer and less healthy and educated? I'd say maybe to a degree, but more research is needed,” he said.

“Remember that the environment may be pushing the other way - in the long run, the world is getting richer and better educated and healthier.

I’d say clean water, irrigation, fertiliser, anti biotics and farm tech would be responsible for most of the 5-6 billion additional humans. Perhaps with mass transportation tech.

Wanna know how dumb kids are these days.

Today I've had loads of kids in year group rubbing tiger balm on their eyes.

One kid did it period 1, went to medical... then did it again at break.

Thank you tik tok

"Some (still) have the correct balance in their DNA to survive, modern science or no modern science."

Good point, now we know for a fact [FACT!] that at least 19.5 million in the UK refused to even take one of the experimental big pharma clot shots.
30M more refused any more injections after taking stock of themselves since their first misguided shot.

So there is some less mutated DNA floating around, give or take those of us who've had a lifetime of ingesting plastics, poisons and other various toxins in the atmosphere and food supply.

I do find it funny hearing those who succumbed to the comically badly scripted mindfuck of the century citing the tragically true documentary film "Idiocracy" as they allowed their children and other loved ones to be psychologically traumatised for life [or worse still, had their DNA harvested through unnecessary invasive PCR/DNA harvesting program under the guise of a health check, and altered by a MRNA shot] by playing along with all the neurotic hysterical faggots terrified of the very thought of catching a fucking poxy cold.

They really need locking up in pods and buried alive deep in the ocean.

That's not the same as owing their life/very existence to it.

Re: Brits evolving to be thick and poor
After two wars in 30 years the population was devastated and needed a strong health service and welfare state to make it strong and healthy for the future.

Add to this the mass house building program - where for the first time a whole generation of the poor no longer had to live in overcrowded slums - it was the least that government could do.

Of course, most of the baby boomers and generation X naturally put it all down to their own genius god like ability to get the country off it's arse.

I think its an interesting fact that people would even get upset by a paper like this. There must be multiple benefits for being poor and thick otherwise people would die off.

Without the educated rich providing a benefits system, they would.
