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
