$1 Spent On Smoking Cessation Saves $3
A program that helped low income Massachusetts residents stop smoking saved
three-dollars for every dollar spent. That’s the conclusion of a study from
George Washington University published online today in the journal PLoS One.

“While we have always known that helping people quit smoking is an
investment in their health, this study shows that our efforts are also a
sound financial investment for the Commonwealth,” said Governor Deval
Patrick in a statement. “This represents another positive outcome of health
reform in Massachusetts.”
