4. Czech Republic

had a study done by consulting and engineering firm KPMG a few years back which proved exactly what you say. Needless to say government officials rejected the report because they were looking for the opposite results to support a planned crackdown on smoking which they claimed would cut health care costs drastically. What the report showed was that smokers died earlier and already saved the government a large amount. The overall cost of health care would only increase if you extended smokers' lives. Talk to you later,I'm going outside for a smoke.
