A rebuttal to the news that genes are not responsible for diabetes

I reported here that DiabetesInControl.com ran a story that genes are not responsible for type 2 diabetes. The findings of a study revealed little evidence that inherited genes cause common diseases like diabetes, heart disease, autism, cancer, depression and dementia. As you might imagine that has created a stir and some sharp criticism. 

To share both sides of this controversial issue, here’s one expert’s rebuttal to that study from Constantin Polychronakos, M.D., F.R.C.P.C., Professor, Departments of Paediatrics and Human Genetics, Director, Division of Endocrinology, McGill University Health Centre. Now that’s a lot of titles!
