Scientists have discovered that a Ashkenazi Jewish gene predisposes the chosen ones to a vastly increased chance of having schizophrenia, schizoaffecive disorder and manic depression. This gene raises the chances of an Ashkenazi Jew having such a disorder by 40 percent.
The study which concluded this was published in Nature Communications, and was conducted by the Jew University of Jerusalem Professor Ariel Darvasi and Jew Dr. Todd Lencz of the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research in New York. The study was based on the DNA samples of 25,000 Askenazi Jews.
