Smokers, the obese cheaper to treat than healthy, long-living people: study

A new Dutch study was released yesterday saying that preventing obesity and smoking can save lives, but it doesn't save money.


It costs more to care for healthy people who live years longer, according to a Dutch study that counters the common perception that preventing obesity would save governments millions of dollars.

It is time that we all do our part; get fat and do what the cool kids in grade 9 did, start smoking. If you are already fat and smell like smoke, great work you are doing your part.

Finally validation for what I have been saying all along, "If it is windy and wavy out on the water, just stay at home and watch TV, it is better for society"
