bad for your health?

I've seen it tagged with British English elsewhere (see #268641), although it's not exactly common in British English. To my British ears, 'bad for your health' sounds better, but that might be a reflection on my age. Nevertheless, this appears to be a variant that whilst uncommon is at least in use.
