TAX WHAT YOU DON'T WANT:

Nearly half of U.S. cancer deaths blamed on unhealthy behavior (ASSOCIATED PRESS, NOVEMBER 21, 2017)

The study found that 45 percent of cancer deaths and 42 percent of diagnosed cancer cases could be attributed to what the authors call "modifiable" risk factors. These are risks that are not inherited, and mostly the result of behavior that can be changed, like exposure to sun, not eating enough fruits and vegetables, drinking alcohol, and, most importantly, smoking.

And another quarter is overdiagnosis.
