Social factors trump genetic forces in forging friendships, study finds
Genetic similarities may help to explain why human birds of a feather flock together, but the full story of why people become friends is contingent upon the social environment in which individuals interact with one another.

More than good vibes: Researchers propose the science behind mindfulness
Achieving mindfulness through meditation has helped people maintain a healthy mind by quelling negative emotions and thoughts, such as desire, anger and anxiety, and encouraging more positive dispositions such as compassion, empathy and forgiveness. Those who have reaped the benefits of mindfulness know that it works. But how exactly does it work?
Remember, we have several articles on transgenerational trauma. Dr. Bunch

Traumatic consequences long after fall of the Berlin Wall
One in three former political prisoners of the German Democratic Republic still suffers from sleeping disorders, nightmares and irrational fear. Researchers reveal these post-traumatic stress disorders in a study — the first to examine the post-traumatic consequences in former political prisoners over a period of 15 years.

Does true love wait? Age of first sexual experience predicts romantic outcomes in adulthood
It’s a common lament among parents: Kids are growing up too fast these days. Parents worry about their kids getting involved in all kinds of risky behavior, but they worry especially about their kids’ forays into sexual relationships. A new study examines whether timing of sexual initiation in adolescence predicts romantic outcomes — such as whether people get married or live with their partners, number of romantic partners, and relationship satisfaction — later in adulthood.

Greater parental stress linked to children’s obesity, fast food use, reduced activity

Missing link between mental health disorders and chronic diseases in Iraq war refugees
Researchers may have discovered why people exposed to war are at increased risk to develop chronic problems like heart disease years later. And the culprit that links the two is surprising.

I believe there are some problems with this article and bringing the research forward to the US. While there is documentation of creativity and bipolar disorder, schizophrenia in the US is seen as decreasing cognition and creativity due to brain damage that occurs as young as childhood. It has been my experience that patient artists and writers are often bipolar, but have not once found that with schizophrenic patients.
The question I have is how the article and research were translated, and how is a disorder defined differently in Sweden. The American system of diagnosis and disorder description is not accepted or followed by all other countries.
Further, one must look deeply at the purpose of creativity in humanity. What is disordered and what is survival of species? What is innate brilliance and what is from dysfunction of the brain?

Link between creativity and mental illness confirmed in large-scale Swedish study
People in creative professions are treated more often for mental illness than the general population, there being a particularly salient connection between writing and schizophrenia (I think here they mean bipolar, Dr. Bunch), according to researchers whose large-scale Swedish registry study is the most comprehensive ever in its field.
