Smoking and Tobacco

Most Unhealthy Cigarette

02/18/2010

Question:

What are the top 10 unhealthiest cigarettes? I’ve been told that Newport cigarettes are very unhealthy due to the mentholization of them and that the filter has fiber glass in it.

Answer:

That's a very interesting question. There is some suggestion in the literature that mentholated cigarettes are more difficult to quit.

Does it really matter? It's like trying to decide whether to jump off a five story building or a six story building. Odds are you are going to die or be seriously injured with regular use of any cigarette or cigar. Consider quitting now, before it is too late.
