As I was writing my blurb I thought that I was overstating the nature side of the nature vs. nurture deal.
Schizophrenics are probably hard wired for their disease and this predisposition becomes a reality when environmental stuff prevents itself.
However, the nature suff was very overstated at one time.
You familiar with the twin studies? - separated at birth and raised in entirely different environments with no contact - 20 or 30 years later - they have the same type of job, same interests, same personality, blah, blah,blah.
As a parent of 2 girls I will always vote for the importance of NATURE over nurture.
