This may explain why some people can be prone to mental illness, even when they don't share important environmental risk-factors.

 

It's an interesting study. It certainly complicates the nature/nurture debate. The findings here imply that environmental conditions and experiences can influence our biology, and in turn, the genetics we pass on. It is then no longer possible to argue that some factors are strictly genetic, and some are strictly environmental. It only makes sense that this dichotomic reasoning is too simplistic to explain human behavior.
