Interesting that genes are the larger part of destiny when it comes to dreaded diseases such as breast and prostate cancer. Less so, somehow, when it comes to intelligence, where numerous studies show heritability c. 80%.

I wonder how received opinion will respond when the decisive genetic markers for IQ have been identified. Just a few years now ...
