A new study indicates that tacos can make you smart.

Specifically, rats given cumin-spiked water learned things more quickly, and were more resistant to a drug that mimics the effects of Alzheimer's. Earlier this year, rats whose diets were 5 to 15 percent cilantro also showed signs of having stronger brains.

We know some pretty bright taco-eaters who lend credibility to these studies. So why is it that so many taco-lovers are portrayed as being complete dumbasses?
