Over the years I have written four letters to The New York Times.Two of them were published which shows that my view points were taken into consideration.

THE COMEBACK OF SAL MONELLA !

No, he is not an Italian movie star.
Just when we thought that was safe to make a meringue or " oeufs aux gelée", the New York Times published that Salmonella is making a comeback...oops a " return" like Norma Desmond of " Sunset Boulevard" said. What is safe to eat now? Who do we trust or believe? One day a drug is safe to take. Next day Ambien makes you sleepwalking and have a feast at the Ice box. For a few months the fad was low count carbohydrate bread. Now they have disappeared from the shelves. There is a proliferation of organic foods. From eggs to bananas, supermarkets are selling the label " organic" If an egg is organic...how can it be contaminated by salmonella since the chicken who laid it is also organic and fed with organic compounds? And with all this organic jazz, the prices go up and up!
