Your May 14 column in the NY Times¬†pointing out that “Isolation is on a par with high blood pressure, obesity, or smoking as a health risk factor” brought to mind what Dennis Peron told the Institute of Medicine Investigators when they visited the San Francisco Cannabis Buyers Club in December, 1997 (see attached pdf). Please forward this to Dr. Cacioppo if you think he’d be interested.

Yours truly,
