Stop Smoking & Gain Weight

Here are four curious facts.

In 1960, 42% of Americans smoked and 13% were obese.
In 2009, 20% of Americans smoked and 35% were obese.

I wonder if we could conclude that 22% of Americans stopped smoking and began overeating. And I wonder which of the two - smoking or overeating - do the most to reduce life expectancy.
