Could it also be related to poorer parents working more hours, thus having less time to be with the kids during their early years playing with them, reading for them and otherwise stimulating their brain development? Or has that been corrected for?

Why would it need to be corrected for? If its was caused by Poverty then it SUPPORTS THE CONCLUSION.

How did people become so poor at basic science on this site?

Large segments of society are not on board with the PC, wimpy, constantly-whining-about-bullying-and-____ism that is pervasive in media, especially an institution like BBC. Clarkson is a figure who pushes back at that trend, and many see him as a hero (now perhaps a martyr) for it

Careful, your persecution complex is showing. The guy was fired for physically assaulting someone. Assault is not considered free speech in any jurisdiction.

True, some ways of eating well are easier than others, though.

Personally, I have had some success recently by simply going with healthier starches. I could probably eat a pound of potatoes in a sitting, my body just loves that stuff, so for weeknight meals we do things like barley instead. Sub black or brown rice for white rice, etc...

I think if you want to support ISIS and fundamentalist Islam in a Western country, you should be given a one-way ticket to the Islamic country of your choice.

I do not agree with what you say. Not only will I not defend your right to say it, but I will try to get you deported. --definitely not Voltaire

I'm guessing you live in "The Land of the Free."

I heat my house with incandescent bulbs. Until LED's can do the same thing, I will never switch. What kind of an idiot would switch to a less efficient method of lighting AND heating their house?

I'm glad your ceiling is nice and toasty. The people are usually located on the floor, though.
