“What we have learned is there is a relationship between the way you perceive and control the motion of your own body and your propensity to get sick,” = = = TRUE you get sick when what you see does not match what you feel. I got sick once in just a few feet when what the car was doing did not match what I was seeing. Hint: being busy once boarding ship helps take your mind off the motion. My dad (Marine in WWII) made it a point to volunteer for work the first hours as he got his sea legs.
