    No ticket here (MyA+), but had to take a punt to get Lufthansa flights Gatwick to Rome. At least I can get a (partial) refund on those and cancel hotel without charge

    Sorry, missed that link. I would suggest that there is solid literature to the effect that diet can play an important role. However, there is a lack of consensus on exactly what diet :)

    Er - that’s a blog article, not peer-reviewed scientific research. Hereditary factors play into pretty much any disease. Having said that, it’s a helpful article, just not exactly the consensus of research

    [Other Sport] Viva Las Vegas
