Existe amplia evidencia científica que vincula al tabaquismo con la mortalidad. Para estimar el costo de la mortalidad anual atribuible al tabaco (MAT) para adultos en Argentina se utilizaron datos de prevalencia de consumo de fumadores y ex fumadores (SEDRONAR), riesgos relativos de muerte por las patologías relevantes (Cancer Prevention Study II), muertes por dichas enfermedades y el valor de la consecuente productividad perdida. Se concluye que en el 2000, se produjeron 39.131 MAT en Argentina en los mayores de 35 años (16% de las de ese grupo). El costo anual medido como pérdida de ingresos futuros por mortalidad prematura fue de 469 millones de pesos, implicando esto $14 por habitante y 0,17% del PBI del año 2000. También se encontraron diferencias debidas a cada causa de mortalidad por sexo y edad.
