It is not only the IQ that is declining, but also physical condition ...

In 50 years, the physical capacity of young people has dropped drastically

More than a spectacular statistic, a real danger. While this Wednesday, September 23 marks the National Day of School Sports, a study published this week and mentioned by RTL alerts on the physical condition of young people today. In 50 years, the study reveals, the physical capacity of 7-18 year olds has fallen by 25%.

For Professor François Carré of Rennes-1 University, cardiologist, these figures are alarming. “We do not realize the danger that this represents, he explains on RTL. Health capital is built up to the age of 18, it is your physical capacity. The decrease in physical capacity of the younger generations could lead to a shorter life expectancy than that of their elders.
More diabetics among young people

Professor Carré is particularly concerned about the development of diabetes linked to overweight in the youngest children, a phenomenon that was still rare a few years ago. "Today, the figures are there, we have diabetics aged 14, 16," he explains. Me, when I learned medicine, type 2 diabetes, that is to say diabetes linked to overweight, it was the 40 year old man, there were never 14 year old children . "

I think that the ranking of Google queries by country is a good indicator of the level of education, instruction, interest and even more so of the IQ of the countries ...

For France in 2021 it has already been published ... and it's WTF on the "why"! : Shock: : Shock: : Shock:

My thought at the moment is that it allows us to value ourselves.

When my kids passed their baccalaureate, and I helped them a little with math, physics, it was that there were things, simple for me, that they did not master at all.

But, there were more complicated things for me, which they "mastered".

The "oldest" is 34 years old....

So hard to say...

Are the tests in line with "our current life"? Are the tests outdated for some?

I had a "good" teacher in maths, and one in physics who made me hate chemistry....

Teaching made me hate it...

Force you to pass in 1st in a sector that you do not want. In December, in second, I started to put my bag down in the evening, and to take it back the next day, without doing anything more... But hey, when you're "born" stupid, you stay there! : Lol:
