Response to Dennis Donovan (Original post)

25. Why are Italian death rates so much higher?

Diet? Genetics? Heredity? I'm thinking olive oil and cheeses, two things not so prevalent in China. I'm thinking genetics, perhaps Asians have had ancestors of this disease for centuries but it's new to caucasian populations.

As for the suggestions in the article - playing sporting events to an empty stadium? All well and good, but what about the athletes? They're breathing on each other.
