Addiction and Substance Abuse
In all cases?
If a man is an alcholic/coke addict, and a woman gets pregnant w/that man....will the child in all cases be addicted also? Or, is that only sometimes?
The answer is only sometimes, as genetics is not a single gene phenomenon. Environment also plays a role.
