  Smokers die 5 years sooner
The Australian: Smokers lose at least five years [April 21, 2005]: "LONDON: The risks of smoking are far greater than most people recognise, new statistics indicate.

Being a smoker at the age of 30 cuts a man's life expectancy by five years and a woman's by more than six, according to research from the Institute of Actuaries.

At any age up to 80, the chances of dying in the next year are almost doubled by being a smoker, the research indicates.

A man aged 60 who is a smoker has a risk of dying in the next year of 106 in 10,000, but if he is a non-smoker the risk is only 48 in 10,000.

For a woman smoker the same age, the risk is 85 per 100,000, while for a non-smoker it is 35 per 100,000."
