Genetics or environment? The nature vs nurture question is going to keep researchers occupied for the next 100 years if not longer. The question that is being asked by one Canadian researcher is “Does testosterone in utero enhance IQ?” While a definitive answer is definitely years away, the science seems to indicate that there is a possible link.
The more testosterone your child is exposed to at critical times during early development, the more likely that child will focus on subjects such as math and science. Will hormonal supplementation become the gold standard to produce genius children? Who knows, but at the very least, this scientist believes that parents could help determine what subjects their children will be good at by testing testosterone during pregnancy.
