Not to be gross or graphic, but if a guy with AIDS was purposefully passing AIDS to somebody else, that is a crime.
It's one thing to regulate behavior. It's another for businesses to exploit addictive tendencies for profit, and do so in a way that it exerts a massive collective cost on society. I think it's absolutely laughable that the same people who defend our right to eat poison are the same ones who want to keep costs down for everyone. It is an absolute fact that the fatter everyone gets, the more my health care costs go up.
If you don't like the price of your healthcare, quit using it.
This is a win-win situation all around. You won't have to bitch about your healthcare costs anymore, and since you'll probably die at a young age, the world will be rid of another self-centered, dictatorial control freak.
