To the editors:

Your recent article “The Yeast of Our Problems” [January 22] attracted widespread attention and did address the problem fairly and honestly as well as comprehensively. Many of my patients noticed an article on Allergy and Allergists in Consumer Reports a few weeks previously but even many more asked me if I had seen the excellent article in the Reader. Obviously your circulation locally is impressive. Keep up the good work.
