However, I take serious issue with some statements in this piece. How comforting to read that "even when cancer cells evade the immune system, they are not always fatal." I am sure my sister, who was diagnosed with a very early bladder cancer after 3 expensive tests, would disagree with the philosophy that it makes sense to wait until that "true cancer will surface eventually, when it causes symptoms."
Would it be a mistake to read between the lines and conclude that the medical academics you quote are trying to prepare people for life under the strictures of government-controlled medicine? You owe your readers a profound apology for publishing this dangerous misinformation.
Oh dear does everyone die when they reach 60? We at 70 are still interested in looking good. Please add hints etc for our group. You are a magazine for the mature.
My sisters and I buy subscriptions to several different magazines then swap them around. One sister had previously had a subscription to More but had let it lapse so another sister decided to start it up again a few months ago. I have to say I had always loved More but in the last few issues I have been very disappointed. I thought the idea of the magazine was that it was for women over 40 and yet in the last couple of issues the articles and beauty suggestions have been for 30s, 40s and 50s and last month your model was in her 30s. There are plenty of magazines out there designed for the 30 year olds and I feel let down that this magazine is no longer what it was. As a 53 year old I was always confidant following the beauty advice and fashion guidelines but now I'll have to pick and choose so as not to end up as "mutton dressed as lamb".
I'd love for you to go back to the original formula - it worked.
I just turned 65, not a fact I admit easily. I have been a More subscriber since the very beginning. My mortgage is paid off, as are my kids' college debts, and I have lots of disposable income. I got my latest promotion when I was over 60. I work out with a trainer twice a week, and I probably look and feel better now than I did at 50. It seems to me that I am just the kind of subscriber you and your advertisers want But your last 2 covers have been about being the best something at "30, 40 and 50." Does that make the rest of us "chopped liver?" With covers like these, you are turning your back on a lot of women of "style and substance." In particular, I feel as though you are turning your back on me.
What are you going to do to win me, and all the others like me, back?

I am writing in reference to the article in Dec 2013 magazine called, "Reaching a spiritual peak". It offends me that the writer to omit Christ. The very holiday is around his beginnings. So when she says, that the "chain of human belief itself, transferred down the generations is what makes the place profound". She really doesn't get it and neither does your magazine. Why don't you try celebrating the very reason there is a holiday called Christmas??? I will never buy another MORE magazine. I thought your magazine was different. Why not write about what the holiday is about?? No, you had rather be lose membership. I have many friends who read your magazine and was offended by your fear on this subject. A & E learned. Maybe you will.....................when you don't have anyone who wants to read MORE anymore.
