I READ with great interest the letter written by Capt Dr Wong Ang Peng (Rtd), president of the Society of Natural Health Malaysia, published on Jan 5 (“Making the case for palm oil”, Views, The Star; online at tinyurl.com/star-palm-oil).

Dr Wong articulated the health benefits of palm oil and did a great comparison of the environmental sustainability of different oil-producing crops, namely soy, canola and corn, with oil palm in terms of pesticide and herbicide usage. I cannot agree with him more on this.
