Twin studies can elucidate physical characteristics.

Attempts to show that behavior and mental aptitude are inherited are straight out of "Brave New World" and Stalinist efforts to breed "the socialist man" thru Lysenkoism. [1.]

This research is un reproduced and, so, lacks confirmation, yet this is the second time in one month it is presented here. Why?

The world has recently learned again that taking British medical "research" at unconfirmed face value is taking one's chances.

This affair shows why.
