To the Editor: In your recent supplement on spirituality and health, I note that none of the authors cited competing interests. However, several authors gave their affiliations as Loma Linda University, an institution owned and operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, a fundamentalist Christian sect with strong evangelical and millenarian beliefs. I also note the financial support given to the publication by the same church. Does the above not constitute “competing interests”?
