Newsweek (1/8, Moyler) reports investigators “have identified six genetic variants linked to the development of anxiety disorders” after examining “genetic and health data derived from 200,000 veterans of the United States Armed Forces, which was compiled in the Million Veteran Program.” Five of the “six genetic variants associated with higher risks of developing anxiety disorders” were “found in white Americans, while an additional one was found in black Americans.” The variants “were found on chromosomes 1, 3, 6, 7 and 20,” and “the one on chromosome 7, was previously identified to be correlated with higher occurrences of bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.” (SOURCE: APA Headlines)
