  1. What a load of crap that article is! I tried to post a reply, but I had to register and I think I have to be a psychiatrist to do so. Probably spitting in the ocean, but it pisses me off how they get away with spouting this bullshit (“60-80% of the cause of schizophrenia is genetic” without any reference,and in the next sentence admitting that there is no known genetic correlation with schizophrenia!) and no one in the profession calls them on it.
