The Suicide Gene

Hosted by  • 

Imagine being able to prevent just one of the roughly 40,000 suicides that happen every year in the US. That possibility is a little closer to reality thanks to a new study published in The American Journal of Psychiatry.The study looked at a gene that helps regulate cortisol, and found some people who committed suicide had a mutated version of this gene. This could lead to a suicide blood test.
