Study finds genetic link to violence, delinquency

And a certain mutation in DRD2 seemed to set off a young man if he did not have regular meals with his family.

“But if people with the same gene have a parent who has regular meals with them, then the risk is gone,” Guo said.

“Having a family meal is probably a proxy for parental involvement,” he added. “It suggests that parenting is very important.”

He said vulnerable children might benefit from having surrogates of some sort if their parents are unavailable.

I’m scratching my head over this. Is this poor reporting, a misunderstanding of the research, or what?!
