Expatriate smokers seeking international health insurance may find reasons to quit from the results of a recent study.
The research found that the lowest mortality rates in the populace are seen in women who are not obese and do not smoke, Laurence Gruer, director of public health science at NHS Health Scotland, said in a podcast from the British Medical Journal.
A 28-year cohort study, titled Cause specific mortality, social position and obesity among women who never smoked, found that economic class did not appear to be a significant factor.
This was "the most positive message" discovered in the report, Mr Gruer said.
Obesity and smoking among women of a lower economic class was blamed for higher levels of cardiovascular disease, with a "surprising" number of seriously overweight women found, he asserted.
Smoking also has a financial impact, as the NHS noted that someone who smokes 20 cigarettes every day will spend more than £900 on tobacco over the next six months.
