What Chutzpah! Jews Are Smarter, But Also Sicker, Says Author

Abraham’s Children: Race, Identity, and the DNA of the Chosen People, Jon Entine.

[W]hat if Judaism as a genetic inheritance is compatible with Judaism as a cultural inheritance? And what if the genes that make Jews smart also make them sick?

Apparently so.
