Yesterday, Professor Ian Deary of Edinburgh University said a child's IQ could predict whether they would develop the deadly disease.
His research shows that people with low mental ability were more likely to smoke than their brighter peers - and clever kids live longer.
He said: "Up to the age of 40 years old there was almost 100 per cent survival of those at the upper end of the mental ability spectrum."
Psychiatrist Prem Misra said: "Brighter children will take note of the warnings."
