Well, I think, and the science seems to bend this way too, that it is both. The tough part is cracking the genetic code as well as making the 'ideal' environment. The second part is tough because, I think, we've created a society bent on values of greed, negativity, and selfishness. We don't have any sense of 'community', and helping each other.

Just imagine if we explored and created even better medications, as well as reduced stress levels by having communities of people that help each other..help each other get jobs...share the wealth..etc. We'd be so much better off, but I doubt we will get there anytime soon. People could start taking meds at a young age based on genetic history, and head off problems before they become worse. We already suggest people take 'suppliments' and such...and even aspirin for heart attack prevention.
