Perhaps the worry is not because of territorial expansión using ilegal methods about which there are plenty of examples but because being the first one using a new one when the north pole is in dispute, the ownership of the moon and eventually the ownership of the sun.

Genetics plays a huge part but I also think lifestyle plays a somewhat smaller role in the disease. A Dietician once told my mother, "It's in the blood." However I do think genetics plays a larger role.
