anonymousthank you for your considered reposnse.from your comments i see we largely agree. your reference to schizophrenia If i had a schizophrenic parent, I would have a 50% chance of developing schizophrenia. The environment surely has a say on whether i am pushed over the edge or not, but i am far more likely to develop the condition than the average american (1% chance). is completely consistent with what i wrote: genes are not autonomous. They are ‘expressed,’ ‘turned-on’ or ‘off,’ in reposnse to environmental stressors/stimuli Predisposition is not a cause! Genetic predisposition always requires exposure to an environmental stressor emotional, chemical or physical. I highly recommend the book Blaming the Brain by Elliot Valenstein. On pages 144-145: Consider the evidence that schizophrenia and depression, tend to run in families. This by itself is not evidence of a genetic cause, as poverty also runs in families. While there are higher incidences of schizphrenia in children of schizphrenics and, more strikingly, identical twins of schizophrenics, there are still many shared and influential environmental factors that, as you say, may push (one) over the edge to be schizophrenic.Those environmental factors can occur before birth, in gestation, growing in the womb of a schizophrenic mom and after birth, growing up in a household with a schizophrenic parent. It is certainly reasonable to assume that individuals may inherit a predisposition to develop a particular mental disorder a constitutional predisposition or tendency towards developing a particular disease, but a predisposition is only realized under certain conditions (Blaming the Brain)
