Stupid is as stupid does
Stunning finding reveals greatest level of stupidity amongst readers of Health News websites

A recent study published in the Proceedings of the National Institute of Science (PNIS) has shown a incredible, if unsurprising, link between how often a person reads "Health News" websites and their IQ. After interviewing a number of people about their website habits, it was shown that regular readers have lower IQs than their peers who are sensible enough to avoid such websites.  There was even shown a significant lowering of the IQ score for those readers who also shared the articles on their social media networks.  One person who took part in the study, Tom Brookings, 32, of Butte, MT, was quoted as saying "I don't see the harm in sharing articles about how vaccines cause Autism, and if you do then you're probably a Big Pharma shill!".  Tom had shared a total of 593 articles from such websites, mostly about the vaccine-autism link or the conspiracy by pharmaceutical companies to keep the cure for cancer suppressed, and his IQ was measured at 67.  Sadly Tom died recently from complications arising from a bout of Measles.
