LETTERS: Breast test

The Independent Online
"BREASTS: everything you ever wanted to know" (29 October) in a section called Real Life, under a banner of "The human condition", with the promise of "ordinary women" talking about their "bosoms", should have been enlightening.

But where in your A-Z was the mention of breastfeeding? Where were the "ordinary women" over 36? Black women? Fat women? Your feature did not contain even a hint of pregnancy and the changes that occur to the breasts for ever afterwards. It did not touch on biological function, even though breast-feeding helps protect against breast cancer.
