Avalanche – backstage story

-moblog- The next Lancet will publish my editorial on the b2AR and asthma association – “Has all been said?” This is to honour my favorite comedian Karl Valentin “It has all been said – but not by everybody”.

I have to confess that I wanted a completely different title “Search and rescue after the avalanche” where I described the tedious work to find all buried corpses under tons of snow – in analogy for the many genetic association studies – fearing already the next avalanche of genomewide SNP scans. Renember – very dangerous – steep 45o slopes, North West and new snow. Yea, yea.
