Why? Wasn't getting the population to stop smoking supposed to lessen asthma rates. As smoking rates drop, asthma rates soar. You explain that to me please.
Diabetes, 8000 a year die from it here. Many of those now dying of diabetes are ex-smokers who gave up and took up eating. Many of those who die, drink excessive amounts of alcohol.
Who is paying for these deaths, not the junk food junkies, not the alcohol soaked. The smoker is paying and paying and paying.
Lets just say all smokers gave up, who would pay then eh.
