(The Telegraph, by Sarah Knapton) Homosexuality may be triggered by environmental factors during childhood after scientists found that genetic changes which happen after birth can determine whether a man is straight or gay.

The finding is highly controversial because it suggests that some men are not born gay, but are turned homosexual by their surroundings. It also raises privacy concerns that medical records could reveal sexuality.

The new research by the University of California has not yet been published but is being presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Human Genetics in Baltimore.

Scientists studied 37 sets of identical male twins, who were born with the same genetic blueprint, to tease out which genes were associated with homosexuality. In each pair, one of the twins was gay.

Only 20 percent of identical twins are both gay leading researchers to believe that there must be causes which are not inherited.

They found that it was possible to tell whether a man was gay or straight by monitoring tiny changes in how his DNA functions after birth – a field known as epigenetics. Where DNA works as an overall instruction manual, epigenetics act as another layer of information highlighting which parts of the text are important and which can be ignored.  Continue reading

One Response to Homosexuality “may be triggered by environment after birth”

    Just like that other article, they want to label us as homophobes, but they are the ones with a phobia, it’s a morality phobia, and they fear anyone who stands for God’s standards. They want to twist it all around and turn it upside down and point the accusation at us because we won’t embrace them. The slander campaign will only intensify, just as in the holocaust. Only this time it is against Christians.
