comment What are the IQ correlations between relatives?
Let's say there's a disease that, if contracted by a pregnant woman, would always cause the child to have an IQ of 70 irrespective of what the IQs of the parents are. Then that disease was eradicated. Under those conditions you'd expected to see the parent-child IQ correlations rising. That's just a hypothetical example, but reductions in disease and malnourishment may have exerted analogous effects in reality.
