On the trail of the schizophrenia gene Send this entry to: Spurl Ma.gnolia Digg Newsvine Reddit

On the trail of the schizophrenia gene They smell it in the air-the genes that "cause" schizophrenia may be "discovered" soon. The article seems to be trying to avoid hyperbole for once. That's good. But OK, we know it runs in families. We might be on the way to finding the genes that cause it. Maybe we'll get a cure and Jason Soon will be left with a world without the god-intoxicated! (OK-some of you know that my cousin is schizo-but as a college freshmen a friend of mine was ill but on mediation. He didn't tell any of us and stopped medicating himself. One day he accused his roommate of raping his imaginary friend and started beating the crap out of him. A dozen guys had to pile on the schizo to restrain him. Schizophrenia can be scary)
