Bipolar and schizophrenia reversible12th October 2011
New evidence has emerged that up to a third of all cases of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder could be caused by the environment and not genes and may be reversed.
Researchers from King’s College London made the discovery when they examined 22 pairs of identical twins. While the twins are genetically identical, only one of each pair had schizophrenia or bipolar suggesting that the environment was in some way responsible for the problem. The researchers believe up to 30% of all cases are caused this way.
