RE:  Letter # JLE10564

Dear Dr. Ravnskov:

Thank you for your recent letter to the editor. Unfortunately, in view of the many submissions
we receive and our space limitations in the Letters section, we are unable to publish your letter

After considering the opinions of our editorial staff, we determined your letter did not receive
a high enough priority rating for publication in JAMA. We are able to publish only a small fraction
of the several thousand letters submitted to us each year, which means that published letters
must have an extremely high rating.

However, we are forwarding a copy of your letter to the author of the article. The author may
or may not reply to you personally. We do appreciate your taking time to write to us and thank
you for the opportunity to look at your letter.
