Are Light Cigarettes Better for You?
The notion that light cigarettes are less toxic and threatening than other cigarettes is one of Big Tobacco's sneakiest marketing tricks. It simply isn't true. So-called “light” cigarettes still contain scores of chemicals that poison your respiratory and blood stream. Inhaling these substances in smoke still speeds highly-addictive nicotine to your neurons, and wreaks havoc on your longs, no matter what name appears on the cigarette carton.
