What *really* causes lupus?

I get so tired of the medical establishment blaming everything on genetics.
when the rate of autoimmune disease in developed countries (and *only* developed countries) triples in 3 decades, we've got something other than bad genes at play here. I think they either blame genes because they just don't have a better answer, or because they are so heavily influenced by the pharmaceutical industry (who funds the medical schools, then harangues and romances them with pharmaceutical reps and fancy vacations disguised as "speaking opportunities") that they are blind to any solution that puts the power back in the hands of the patient, such as diet change, supplementation, meditation, or moderate exercise.
Well, finally there is a book out there (I wish i'de written it!) called "The Autoimmune Epidemic."
I haven't bought it yet but i fully intend to, esp. after reading this interview with the author:
