In the conversational exchange below, which is right, 'bad for the health' or 'bad for your health'?

Wife: Smoking is very bad for the / your health. Won't you stop smoking? I really worry about you.
Husband: All right. If it will make you happy, I'll stop smoking.

Thanks a lot.

    This may be one of those that depends on where you are from. For me (American who has lived mostly in the northeast), bad for your health is the choice.
