I have to agree. Though it's still interesting, even from that perspective.

I'd also question the level of confidence we should have in the study - seriously - how many vegans are you going to get out of 8,000 people? By the rates I can find they had around 40 vegetarians and 2 vegans. Hardly enough to warrant even a suggestion.
They claim it's statistically significant.

Just to clarify for everyone: the link they found was between "high childhood IQ scores" and the "claim to be a vegetarian."

A much larger study would have to be done to see if there is any link between intelligence (which is difficult to measure) and actual vegetarianism (which is also difficult to measure because it relies on self-reporting).
