Actually, cigarettes tend to kill you off quickly. Being overweight can cause years and years of poor health. I once saw a study (don't ask me to find it) where it was shown that it is a SAVINGS for people to smoke - after all, they usually don't end up on medicaid.
Being overweight is much more costly.
For example, high risks sports should be encouraged, and perhaps subsidized, if you are merely looking from the point of view of medical savings.
just being contrary today just for fun.
