I heard this on the radio the other day, what do you all think?????

Two New Studies Find Genetic Link To Depression
You've known for awhile that you're more likely to have depression if your parents did. But now researchers say they're narrowing it down to specific chromosomes, which means we could be closer to finding how to manipulate those chromosomes to prevent or treat depression. (Both studies appear in the "American Journal of Psychiatry.")

Depression is most definitely a genetic thing.
