  3. I remember Philip Morris using a similar argument that smoking reduces health care costs as early death from smoking related illnesses spares people and governments the considerable expense of all those complicated illnesses they might otherwise encounter in their old age… It’s a disgusting argument to make and if you read the Ash analysis wasn’t even supported by the report itself.
    I wonder if the motor industry had a hand in this study? : )
