Do You Smoke? Your Life is Worth $7000Karien Venter
Unbelievable? Maybe. Shocking? Definitely. But it was scientifically calculated and proven – if you smoke, your life is only worth about $7000. Don’t believe it? Read on…
The World Lung Foundation (WLF) gathered statistics from all over the world on numbers of people that smoke, and the number of people who died because of smoking-related illnesses and conditions.
However, when calculating the amount of profits made per smoker, and the percentage of those smokers who die from smoking-related illnesses…
It came out that, for roughly every $7000 of profit the tobacco companies make, ONE PERSON DIES.

So – we finally have a definite mathematical number for the value of the life of one human being.
Yes, people are killed for less than that. But this is LEGAL.
Are you cheap and easy?
Do you feel your life is worth more?
It’s as simple as that.
P.S. You may also want to consider the value of your life as seen by your loved ones. YOU might think that $7000 is an okay figure, but to them you might be worth infinitely more.
