End of life treatment costs

I've read that somewhere between a third and a half of one's lifetime health care costs occur in the last two years of life, on average.

If that's true, and it is true whether you die at 60 or 90, the savings from smokers, fatties, drunks, and so forth dying earlier will be rather limited.
