Re: Smokers on railway stations

Maybe if sickness is a drain on resources, perhaps employers should look for tee-totallers, too. Or maybe only employ people who have gym memberships and don't eat fatty foods?
Rather a childish argument, if I may say.


But if you want to, let's have a go:

Gym membership is not indicative of fitness. How many people pay membership but either don't go at all or just sit in the hot tub feeling good about themselves?

How many tee-totallers are ex-alcoholics who now have have got irreparably damaged livers, or other organs?

Fatty foods are not really the problem - it's too much food, especially simple sugars.
