Q I read Washington Jack’s letter on the effects of Durk & Sandy’s anti-AGE formulation, and I concur: fewer aches and better sleep. One thing further that I wish you’d comment on: I’ve been diagnosed with a fibrotic condition in my lungs, the result of which is that they easily become inflamed. However, since I started taking the aforementioned product, my problem has lessened. What do you say about that?

A The cause is unclear for conditions of this sort. However, there have been a few scientific articles in the literature that give support for the correlation you cite. Whether or not taking a supplement can have an immediate or even long-term benefit is still questionable. But if you’re finding a benefit, who is to say it’s not so? Please keep us informed.
