I find this science fascinating.

Quote:This gene of interest, called SKA2, is linked with the brain’s response to stress hormones. Changes to this gene could turn everyday strain into suicidal thoughts. SKA2 is expressed in the prefrontal cortex of the brain, which is involved with inhibiting negative thoughts and controlling impulsive behavior. SKA2 is specifically responsible for chaperoning stress hormone receptors, and if there’s not enough SKA2 -- or if it’s altered in some way -- someone under stress won’t be able to shut down the effect of the stress hormone.

I thought smoking ciggies was 1. peer pressure 2. nicotine addiction 3. physical habit to relieve stress. Does your dysregulation in stress pathways theory include smoking marijuana?

I don't know if statistics on suicide notes the prevalence of (tobacco) smokers, but somehow I doubt it.
