A. Victor Segno — “How to Live 100 Years”

"Tight vests and suspenders worn by men are contrary to hygienic
principles. These articles should be loose enough to permit free
exercise of the lungs and heart. No article of clothing that fits
tightly should be worn. Among this list are shoes, gloves, collars,
garters, belts, corsets, etc. The most harmful of all clothing and the
article that has done more to destroy the health of the race and make
women slaves to internal weakness is the corset. No one can breathe
normally in one of those destroyers of health and wreckers of otherwise
happy homes."

–A. Victor Segno,
"How to Live 100 Years,"
Los Angeles, 1903
