Here's a clear example from what the science currently says:

Gene X causes cancer in ??? (X is any gene, ??? is any species, could be humans).

That statement is incomplete and by itself, false.

One cannot say gene X does anything except if carefully studied in many environments and with many different stimuli:

Gene X predisposes ??? to cancer by Y% given these particular conditions, or set of conditions. (where X is the same gene as above in the same ??? species).

This statement tells you a bit more, but really only gives you a probability, and a probability that may be insignificant in terms of the entire population.

If you watch those two videos you should be able to equate that example to what I stated earlier. It's not conjecture, it's what a lot of years of research and peer reviewed debate shows.
