Adult intelligence - Breastfeeding and/or increased breastfeeding duration can contribute
to improved intelligence. - 5/6/2002 - http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/433149
Infant learning - The pregnant and nursing mother can improve her child's IQ by
supplementation/intake of omega 3 fatty acids, especially docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).

For each increase in maternal daily intake of 100mg cod liver oil, the child cognitive ability increases by .13 points. 
Consider (Blue Ice) fermented cod liver oil.  www.greenpasture.org
A daily supplement of 4.5 grams DHA may increase the IQ by 6 points.  DHA and
arachidonic acid are 2 fatty acids vital for development of child's - brain, central nervous
center and retina, especially during last pregnancy trimester and first months after birth. 7/2006 www.lef.org 
Infant learning - Robert C.Titzer, Ph.D Your Baby Can Read
audio/video school teaches 9 month old infants to read.  http://www.infantlearning.com/
Omega oil 3-6-9 (flax-fish-borage) combinations are excellent. Keep refrigerated.
Omega 3 oil (wild fish or vegetarian) plus multi B vitamins help greatly in preventing/reducing
postpartum depression and related female hormonal bipolar/manic-depression.  Take daily.
Infant learning - Lee, Dr John R + Hopkins,Virginia - What Your Doctor May Not Tell You about Menopause Chapter 8
Sex Hormones and the Brain
share that natural progesterone greatly improves intelligence of offspring when consumed by mother during last trimester + remind us that spina bifida can be prevented by adequate doses of B vitamin: folic acid.  Authors go on to advise us to add natural progesterone for any brain injury.  Authors prefer cream to supplements.

Amen, Dr Daniel (clinical neuroscientist, psychiatrist, and brain-imaging expert)  
"Anatomist Marian Diamond, PhD, from the University of California at Berkely studied aging in rats.  Those rats who were allowed an easy life without any new challenges or learning had less brain weight than those rats who were challenged and forced to learn new information in order to be fed. New learning actually caused increased brain density and weight. Strive to learn something new everyday, even if it is just for a short period of time. Einstein said that if a person studies a subject for just 15 minutes a day in a year he will be an expert, and in 5 years he may be a national expert. Learning is good for your brain."
Thompson, Paul - http://www.nootropics.com/intelligence/processing-speed.html  - "Journal of
Neuroscience, UCLA neurology professor Paul Thompson and colleagues used a new type of brain-imaging scanner to show that intelligence is strongly influenced by the quality of the brain's axons, or wiring that sends signals throughout the brain. The faster the signaling, the faster the brain processes information." per Carl Zimmer 3/19/2009
Smart People Really Do Think Faster - audio -
DTI is a variant of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) that can measure the structural integrity of the brain's white matter, which is made up of cells that carry nerve impulses from one part of the brain to another. The greater the structural integrity, the faster nerve impulses travel...They're also 'the most beautiful images of the brain you could
imagine,' Thompson says. 'My daughter, who's 5, says they look like little flowers at each point in the brain.'"


It's NOT what we know or learn, but rather what we apply/do with what we know/understand. 
This is especially true of scripture (God's Word & His revelation).
