According to a
study published in the
The National Cancer Institute
(January 2000), smokers may be getting twice
the amount of tar and nicotine from low-tar
cigarettes than previously thought.
cigarettes may carry specific health risks
and be related to dramatic increases in a
previously rare form of lung cancer, Aden
carcinoma. Whereas the cigarette smoke from
the high tar cigarettes smoked in earlier
decades was too irritating to inhale very
deeply, smokers of low tar cigarettes puff
more intensely, delivering more carcinogens
and toxins to the peripheral lung area where
Aden carcinoma develops.
