Are light cigarettes any better for you?

Quit Smoking TodayAre light cigarettes any better for you? It is thought that the term “light”, in product marketing is typically healthier for us. Well this is not entirely true, especially when it comes to cigarettes.  Light cigarettes are just as harmful (if not more) to your body than regular cigarettes.

Light cigarettes contain all of the same negative toxins and chemicals that are in regular cigarettes.  When you see a cigarette marked as a light cigarette, it means that the filter of the cigarette is longer and has tiny pinholes in the filter. This allows less smoke into your body.  What cigatette companies dont tell you about light cigarettes is that the filters are made of fiber glass!

Fiber glass is very bad for your lungs. Fiber glass is made up of toxic glass that can really do damage to somes lungs. Makes ya think twice about you light cigarettes, huh?

The tiny pinholes that are on the cigarette filter are measured in millimeters and and barely visable to the human eye. Sometimes people will unknowingly cover these filter holes and injest more tar and nicotine.

If you are a smoker, you really might want to consider quit smoking. There are no healthy or safe alternatives to smoking (except quitting). There are wonderful resources that can aid you in smoking cessation, like Stop Smoking Today. This is a wonder proven program to aid you in smoking cessation.  If you are a non smoker, you will want to educate others on the negative effects of smoking.
