Obesity costs more than smoking

Me sees the bad light on obesity is starting to increase more and more by the year,

"Obesity is not just dangerous, but expensive?" Maybe we oughta ban fast foods then!

>>>>"Overall obesity-related health spending reaches $147 billion,<<<

Me ain't no stat person. But dat amount (on how much obesity costs society) sounds a he!!uva lot higha than the costs of smoking to society.

I wouldn't be shocked if obesity costs more to society than people who choose to "Fire it up" as modern Newport ads say. (Newport is the only brand I see ads for at all in modern times)
