The relationship between intelligence as measured by a standard intelligence test and prevalence of obesity was investigated in a sample of 554 adults. Among the women there was a strong inverse relation with a prevalence of 41.4% obese in the low I.Q. category, 21.9% in the average I.Q. category and 10.7 % in above the average I.Q. category. A similar but less pronounced trend was observed among men.
