Retweeted by Paul Bernal @md_marmar The OD is wrong. What do you expect from Oxford? ;) @guy_herbert And not in a good way. @Defencebrief Frankly, 40g/person of pasta is barely a starter, let alone a decent portion. @ChillaxBcn Indeed, and the Spanish say soja, I believe.Oh, and soy sauce is still soy, not soya. The 70s are over.310 covid 19 deaths recorded in the last 24 hours. Yesterday was not a blip.
