Cigarettes save pipes... not lives

In this story I found on Yahoo China says it has found that chemicals used to make cigarettes, including nicotine, protect steel pipes from rusting, the kind of steel pipes used to transport oil.  After submersing the butts in water Chinese scientists found 9 chemicals which they tested on these pipes.  So if you must smoke, at least you can say you are trying to prevent further oil spills due to rusted pipes.  So light up and tell people you are saving the environment!
This story got me thinking about who smokes the most.  The following maps show the density of male and female smokers in each country in the world.  The red has the most smokers per capita.
