A superficial article on the link between cardiac and intestinal problems and a gene, SGOL1, present in both french-canadian and scandinavian populations. I am trying to get more information.

"Molecular genetic tests also show that the French-Canadian and Swedish mutation have a common origin , suggesting to researchers a founder effect and an important part of population migration . According to their calculations , the legacy of the mutation dates back to the 12th century and would have followed the route of the Vikings from Scandinavia to Normandy , then the colonists who settled in New France in the 17th century ."
