Or simple dysexlia can be a real problem, or even bad eyesight and all sorts of psychological or physical problems.

Just how do you validate an intelligence test? 

Or experts are sometimes worse than useless. Consider we went through 25 years of trans fats being recommended over
natural fats after the alarm was sounded, The FDA approved a new medicine for dementia, with dubious results and significant,
indications of harm, and the inventor of the prefrontal lobotomy was awarded the Nobel prize just a few examples. 

My father died of a heart attack thus I blame the advocates of trans fats for his death. We had no genes to handle those
artificial transfats. Money talks; truth walks.
