In most cases, genes have less than 5% contribution to disease risk

Yet another study (published by geneticists who have a vested interest to come up with results that say otherwise) according to which for the vast majority of diseases genes explain at most 5% of the cause. So, worded differently, more than 95% of the risk of developing a particular disease is entirely environmental. Btw, those … Read more In most cases, genes have less than 5% contribution to disease risk

GWAS predicting height are bunk; same likely the case for disease-prediction

Another study calls into question the validity of genome-wide association studies (GWAS), at least when it comes to traits such as height. Height (together with IQ) was once hailed as one of the most genetically-sensitive traits and so-called polygenic scores were developed that were claimed to predict a person’s height within a fraction of a … Read more GWAS predicting height are bunk; same likely the case for disease-prediction
