Summary
  • A study led by Tammy O. Tengs at the Harvard Center for Risk Analysis concluded that it is less costly to save lives through medicine than it is through injury reduction safety programs or through environmental programs to control toxins. The study, 'Five Hundred Life-Saving Interventions and their Cost Effectiveness,' was based on a literature survey. Tengs believes that regulatory agencies that can save lives more efficiently should be given more funds. With respect to medicine, though, Teng says that prevention is still cheaper than treatment.
