SEE! SAILING THE SEAS LESS TRAVELLED

 

Adventure cruising is a fast growing phenomenon combining extreme luxury with exciting escapades in hitherto inaccessible localities!
Roy Watts navigates 
the way!

 

 

Small ship adventure cruising is a fast growing phenomenon, and was pioneered by Lars-Eric Lindblad who led the first laymen expeditions to Antarctica in 1966. His son Sven now runs Lindblad Expeditions, who entered into an unprecedented alliance with National Geographic in 2004. In March they are taking over the Orion and this has many implications for this popular segment of the maritime tourism market. Their goal is not to change the ship’s well established modus operandi, but to augment her capacities.

SEE! LOW CARB HIGH FAT DIET -
COULD IT IMPROVE CANCER OUTCOMES?

With the incidence of cancer rising, the World Cancer Research Fund International has results for up to 2012, the latest data available, and they state, “There were an estimated 14.1 million cancer cases around the world in 2012, of these 7.4 million cases were in men and 6.7 million in women.
