Summer skin care
I’ve enjoyed several issues of your magazine, and I’m glad you wrote about how to protect the skin from the sun’s harmful effects in “Skin Forecast” (April 2005). Would you also write an article about how to choose a sunscreen?

—D. Reffett, via e-mail

Check out last month’s “Be Sun Safe” (June 2005) for a myth-busting guide to sunscreens and sunblocks, including a review of natural options available at your local store. The article is posted online at We hope the story addresses your concerns.


In close contact
I was so happy I finally saw Delicious Living at a grocery store near our home. Before, I had to travel 40 miles to Lancaster, Pennsylvania, to shop and get your magazine. My husband and I always look forward to reading Delicious Living, which covers so many interesting and helpful topics. And unlike some other magazines, yours is free. Thank you so much.

Money well spent
I always look for Delicious Living at our local grocery store. Since starting to read the magazine, my whole family eats more organic foods. We feel healthier. I’d rather pay a few extra cents and enjoy what I eat. Thank you.
