Losing our intelligence?

I knew it!
“Humans may be gradually losing intelligence, according to a new study. The study, published in the journal Trends in Genetics, argues that humans lost the evolutionary pressure to be smart once we started living in dense agricultural settlements several thousand years ago."
So not only do we no longer have evolutionary pressure to be smart, we’ve also alleviated the evolutionary detriment to being intellectually, shall we say, challenged. Maybe, our gene pool could use a little chlorine.
