It is great to see your enlightening comments here again. I was getting worried about your absence for some time and was about to ask David's permission to allow me to send you an e-mail to make sure that you are OK.

Thank you, Ahmed. I had an overwhelming amount of work that kept me away from GE for some days. Not more than that, fortunately.

I have another idea. What do you think of it?

- Now fewer children and mothers have health problems than ever before (at any time in the past).

My impression is that after "than" there is ellipsis of "they did," so in my opinion the fewer children and mothers/(all) children and mothers conflict arises once again.
