Sitting is not the new smoking [Letter]

September 02, 2014

Mary MacVean of Tribune Newspapers must be a smoker ("Are we sitting ourselves to death?" Aug. 28). Her article about sitting being as dangerous as smoking cigarettes has just given the remaining selfish smokers another fallacious argument to add to, "Why don't they make potato chips and ice cream illegal?"

Now they can add, "why don't they make sitting illegal?"

No one reasonable person concerned about health can accept the argument that sitting is more dangerous than smoking.
