> Bowtie (or do you prefer 64? :)),
<<<Call me Rod, \:^) 64Bowtie refers to my 1964 Chevy Pick-Up that I've owned for 30 years. The Chevy emblem is a bowtie.
> Sounds to me like you think parents can alter genetics in both negative *and* positive ways? If that's the case, I see what you're saying and it's even more reason for me to be concerned about what I can do to give my son a better chance at good mental health.
<<<Environment appearantly can impact the timing of the genetics. If I pay attention to the duration as the change unfolds, I suppose I can have some impact on inevitability. Genetic changes are mostly subtle. A blood test won't earmark an onset of change. Evidence is more dramatic 6 mo after it happens.
