More on smear tests. One woman says she has tried three times to have a test, but the nurse tells her she is not getting sufficient amount of cells - a problem that is quite common. Why, she wonders? . . .
One person from the East thought our article last time about heart disease was patronizing. It's a problem created by the West, he says, which is what I thought we were saying. . .
We were also taken to task by a dietician who thought it was inappropriate to advise anyone to take olive oil preparations for gallstones. Gallstones can be caused by being overweight and by following a high-fat diet, he says. . .
Sweeteners are harmful, and were probably the real cause of Gulf war syndrome, says one reader. . .

Benign tumour of the parotid gland can be caused by a deficiency of magnesium and essential fatty acids, and which can wrongly be diagnosed as a tumour.
