Studies which purport the high cost to society of smoking routinely neglect to factor in the reality that smokers die at younger ages and save society significantly in health care and pension costs.

The personal finance website, WalletHub, has released a report this week called The True Cost of Smoking by State.

WalletHub’s analysts calculated potential monetary losses — including the cumulative cost of a cigarette pack per day over several decades, health care expenditures, income losses and other costs — brought on by smoking and exposure to secondhand smoke.

New York ranks tops on the list for total cost per smoker compared to other states.

The WalletHub analysis is based on a number of assumptions (like any study) including what constitutes the criterion for the largest monetary category: lost financial opportunity due to smoking.

It makes sense to advertise

IT MAKES SENSE TO ADVERTISE

We think there are some pretty good reasons to advertise in our publications, Artvoice, The Niagara Falls Reporter, the Front Page and the South Buffalo News both in print and online editions:

Our job – if I can see straight and hear clearly and understand – is to make advertising and run advertising that is seen and read and heard – and remembered – for its reasonable and compelling truth.

– Fairfax Cone, Foote, Cone & Belding, Chicago

Advertising [is] one of the most fundamental ways to sort out information. And that’s the gift of advertising – to connect with people in a human way – to make the kind of emotional connections that are at the core of storytelling.

The students of Niagara Catholic had questions for Salva, and he did his best to answer them.  Salva gave an emotional response when he told us we are very lucky to live in America and have many opportunities that others in different countries do not.  When Salva was asked what his favorite American food was he said “whole milk.”  Salva said the people in South Sudan cannot eat three meals a day or have the resources to get water.
