Is Mental Illness Hereditary?

Just to start with I don't fight only for better mental health care in the world, but I clearly declare that I fight for peace in the world, for no violence. I'm a peacemaker above all. Mental illness exists because of the differences in the world society. Mental diseases exist because of lack of information. And, of course, mental diseases afflict more the poor. A world with so many wars is undoubtedly sick. And peace in the world would do more good than any chemical medication.

I'll leave to you an article on mental illness and heredity extracted from a medical book. And this text below will show you clearly why mental illness can't be hereditary. Inform yourself!

Insanity is the legal term for what is now more properly called MENTAL ILLNESS, neuroses and psychoses. It is true that much remains obscure and unknown about the origin of mental illness. But it is ignorant and supertitious to attribute much, if any of this to heredity when it is so much more clearly known that what happens to a child in the early years of his life sets the emotional patterns from which later mental illness may emerge. An outstanding psychiatrist Dr. Jules H. Masserman, declares:

"While there might be a tendency to inherit FEEBLE-MINDNESS and perhaps EPILEPSY, there is no reliable evidence for definite hereditary factors in behavioral aberrations less directly dependent on organic or neurologic functions. Rather, controlled genetic environment studies indicate that parents influence their children's patterns of behavior less by genes than by the nature of parental care, precept and example." Furthermore mental illness is so common in modern American society that it is almost impossible to find any family tree completely free of them.

It's a real old text, but it still applies nowadays. Is it necessary to say anything else?

Eu sempre publicarei todo tipo de opinião e ponto de vista. que NÃO INFRINJAM AS LEIS DO MUNDO, nem as leis da Internet.

Não são toleradas ofensas a nenhuma das pessoas que comentam.

Links para blogs e sites que falem de saúde mental são bem vindos, desde que não sejam sites criados para vender psicotrópicos.

As informações dispostas aqui são CONFIRMADAS através de várias fontes. A qualidade obtida aqui não se consegue da noite para o dia, mas sim de uma experiência de VÁRIOS ANOS.

Portanto, se houver algo a ser corrigido aqui, publique nos comentários, mas COM PROVAS, como eu faço.

Algumas pessoas, ao tomar medicações psiquiátricas ou drogas ilícitas, não sofrem efeitos adversos significativos (como vemos algumas pessoas que fumam a vida toda e morrem de velhice.) Portanto verei como normal algumas pessoas dizerem que nunca sentiram nenhum efeito colateral ao tomar determinado psicotrópico.

Mas qualquer indivíduo que escrever algo contra as informações técnicas mostradas aqui deve PROVAR IMEDIATAMENTE na mesma mensagem, do contrário terei que deletar.

Se quiser me contatar pode ser através de um comentário.

This web site is mostly about human rights, health, music and curious videos from Youtube. If you have any of these your contribution is most welcome.

Links to web sites that sell MEDICATION ARE UNWELCOME.

But if your site is interesting and useful just submit the address, WITHOUT ANY EXTRA ELECTRONIC LANGUAGE, such as HTML or the like. Example, http://pacientepsiquiatrico.com is OK, is accepted. But [url="http://pacientepsiquiatrico.com"] would be considered spam, because of the extra electronic language [url. I'll check it out and link to it if I approve it. Thank you
