Intelligence Drugs Could Be 'Common As Coffee'
Apr 19, 2007By: Justin Good -
Imagine a world where a drug more common than caffeine is used to "make people more intelligent." According to a government think-tank, these "cognitive enhancersâ€ will be widely available within two decades. This drug, already "being bought illegally over the internet in the US", claims it will be able to "help a person think faster, relax and sleep more efficiently." In fact, a volunteer study proved that within "two hours of taking the drug, they were better at remembering strings of numbers, were less impulsive and had a better short-term memory."
