Are common, harmful, heritable mental disorders common relative to other such non-mental disorders, and does their frequency require a special explanation?

|Abstract||Keller & Miller's (K&M's) conclusion appears to be correct; namely, that common, harmful, heritable mental disorders are largely maintained at present frequencies by mutation-selection balance at many different loci. However, their “paradox” is questionable. (Published Online November 9 2006).|
