IQs have started to fall by seven points per generation in 'pretty worrying' trend, scientists discover
IQs had risen every decade since World War II but have now begun to fall again
Scientists say the trend, started by those born after 1975, is 'pretty worrying'
Young people's IQ scores have started to deteriorate after climbing steadily since Wold War Two, a new study has found.
The fall, which equates to about seven points per generation, is believed to have begun with those born in 1975, according to the first authoritative study of the phenomenon.
The drop in scores marks the end of a trend – known as the Flynn effect – which has seen average IQs rise for the past 60 to 70 years by roughly three points a decade.
