Thanks for the link - a thoroughly enjoyable article.

We've suspected/known that genetics were behind some diseases/human
conditions just through our family experiences.

My brother has Sjorgrens disease, a trait mostly associated with some
Scandinavian groups according to his neurologist. Our Y-DNA results? I2.
It appears to fall in line with that explanation. Oral family history has
our Johnston(e)s with notorious lower back problems regardless of size,
strength and/or occupations. That has been confirmed by family all across
North America and in the British Isles. Chance and the "Will of God" just
don't explain it all.
