The Confused Gene

Like garlic theory of cardiac ailments there is a gene theory of ailments.
According to garlic theory today garlic is good for your cholesterol while tomorrow  it will be bad.
That is how they keep vacillating about garlic in the context of heart problems.
Science was supposed to be decisive. No more. Now they give you the changing news everyday. And you are left to yourself to keep up with the latest developments.
Then there is gene theory of every thing.
If you do not understand something then just blame it on the genes.
If some one is a serious criminal then oh it is just in his genes-he is not to be blamed.
Some times one feels that medical research is funded by some reining Al Capone.
