Light Cigarettes - Not So Light?

A research which examined the tobacco byproducts in the urine samples of smokers found out that people have been fooling // themselves by thinking that they are getting fewer cancer-causing substances from smoking “light” or “ultra-light” cigarettes.

No significant difference was found in the amount of these dangerous byproducts in smokers’ urine, regardless of the type of cigarettes they smoked nor there was any difference in the levels of cotinine, a byproduct of nicotine.It was conclude that if there were no difference in toxin levels, there would be no difference in the harmful effects of the cigarettes as well.

The question is how cigarette companies can market brands as light or ultra-light if they still deliver as many cancer-causing substances as regular cigarettes? The study blames the situation on the federal government’s antiquated method of classifying cigarettes, which is based on levels of tar in the different brands rather than the levels of toxins that end up in a smoker’s ody.
