I've just seen this on facebook. It's only in the Express at the moment.

It sounds promising/convincing - they have found very strong links with a particular brainstem abnormality, which can then be tested for (and they say treated). It really sounds like they have taken the variables out this time and really hit on something.

Article is very recent so perhaps more will come out over the next few hours/days.

I don't think she said it can be tested for and treated- she said that they needed to find a way to do that.

It does sound promising though

Oh yes - sorry I totally misread that. It says "We have to find ways" and for some reason I read it as "We have ways".
