I disagree. There is strong evidence in the medical literature that exposure to automobile traffic leads to a substantial increase in the risk of respiratory diseases. There is also strong evidence that a sedentary lifestyle is a major risk factor for obesity.

Not to say that we wouldn't need respirologists and bariatric surgeons if our city were less car-centric -- just that we'd need fewer of them.
