Study: Humans Getting Dumber. (VIDEO)
"Just look at all the amazing innovations modern technology has given us: at-home HIV tests, motion-activated screwdrivers and self-inflating tires.

In a two-part paper published in the journal Trends in Genetics, Stanford University researcher Gerald Crabtree suggests that evolution is, in fact, making us dumber — and that human intelligence may have actually peaked before our hunter-gatherer predecessors left Africa."*
John Iadarola (TYT University) and Lisa Fergusson (Current TV) discuss a study that concludes humans are gradually becoming less intelligent.
