We recently submitted a paper that reports covariate (disease severity) adjusted odds ratios from logistic regression model using data from a cross-sectional study.

A reviewer has argued that since the outcome is not rare, we should report relative risks rather than odds ratios. We do not interpret these odds ratios as risk ratios. I found several counter arguments (below), but would be interested what experts see as best practice.
