Cigarettes news, articles and information:
|3/24/2015 - Not too long ago, advertisements encouraged people to smoke and raise their children on sugar-laden drinks using pretty women, cute babies and doctors as catalysts that would hopefully reinforce such disturbing messages.

|3/5/2015 - Today I'm publishing the laboratory test results that document the levels of lead, cadmium, arsenic and aluminum found in popular cigarettes and cigarette rolling paper. The good news is that the concentrations of metals are very low in the rolling paper.

|2/28/2015 - Neither the pill, the patch nor the scary CDC commercials say ONE THING about a smoker's critical need to replenish nutrients and use herbal remedies to win back their health so they DON'T CRAVE cigarettes anymore. Not a single mention. Nicotine gum and electronic cigarettes don't come with a nutritional...|
|2/13/2015 - "E-cigarettes" are just one of the nicknames for electronic nicotine delivery systems. Unfortunately, there is currently no international standard for testing e-cigarettes, commonly called e-cigs, for safety, and the high levels of toxins found in some of them range from formaldehyde to acetaldehyde,...|
|1/23/2015 - No time to waste here. Buy at least three of the top seven superfoods. Buy spring water. Buy organic chocolate. The "New Year" has begun, according to that popular calendar, and anybody who promised themselves to quit smoking really, really wants to quit, like you. So you step up to the plate and you're...|
|1/10/2015 - Have you had a "quit success" lately? A new study reveals that electronic cigarettes are helping people quit the "real thing" -- better known as "cancer sticks." New research shows that smokers trying to quit are as much as 60 percent more likely to succeed if they use "e-cigs" and see a specialist...|
|12/28/2014 - Hello, smokers around the world. Big question: If half a million dollars in cash was on the table and you had to decide right now to quit smoking cigarettes and never pick up another one, would you pick up the pack of Marlboro Reds or the fat stack of cash?! Every smoker in the world has heard at least...|
|12/15/2014 - Are you sick of "trying" to quit cigarettes? You've tried to lose weight before, right? You don't have time to exercise or you just don't feel like it.

|11/26/2014 12:17:40 PM - If you smoke, you know good and well all those times when you've simply "got to have a cigarette." Do any of these sound familiar? - After a meal, after lovemaking, before an interview, after an interview, upon waking up in the morning, at the bar, before work, after work, to break up long work shifts,...|
|9/28/2014 - A new study has found that nearly 10 percent of U.S. cancer survivors are still smoking up to 15 cigarettes every day. Are they insane? Do they know what the cigarettes are doing to their life, or do they not really have the right "choices" needed to quit? -- That is the question. They must be counseled,...|
|9/9/2014 - Some people believe that regularly smoking the 7,000 chemicals in commercial cigarettes is the quickest way to get cancer in the world. Other folks believe that artificial sweeteners, because they taste so sweet, trick the body into ingesting them and are the "Trojan horses" of the food industry, causing...|
|5/6/2014 - Vaporizing liquid nicotine is a habit that's growing very fast, and the FDA wants to regulate the sales to children for fear of electronic cigarettes serving as a gateway drug to commercial cigarettes. If kids try nicotine and become addicted, will they differentiate later between a cigarette loaded...|
|4/26/2014 - Many smokers brag that they use or used electronic cigarettes, or "e-cigs," to get off of commercial cigarettes, even though they were never designed with that in mind; however, it's that mentality that has children picking up the habit, thinking they'll never "upgrade" to the heavy-duty "cancer sticks,"...|
|4/17/2014 - "Hey man, want to meet by the fence after school and have a smoke? I got a vaporizer!" "Hey, these things are cool, they're not like cigarettes at all" -- This is typical talk at middle schools and high schools across the nation, where teens (and even preteens) think it's cool to smoke, because vaporizers...|
|3/15/2014 - If the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) really cared about helping people, they would tell you how to stop smoking, because certainly there are about 40 million people who would love to know.

|3/11/2014 - What amounts of heavy metals are deposited in your body if you smoke a pack of cigarettes every day? What if you smoke two packs a day?

|2/8/2014 - Which "drug" store do you buy your cigarettes from? Is it Rite Aid, Walgreens, Wal-Mart, Target, Kroger or CVS? Do you ask for extra-strength nicotine or do the packages not say how much you're getting? Isn't it kind of strange that the stores (pharmacies) of America, that are supposed to help you get...|
|2/7/2014 - As of October 2014, the CVS Pharmacy chain will cease all tobacco sales.

That is, CVS will continue filling toxic prescriptions and over-the-counter...|
|2/5/2014 - So the Surgeon General, with several supportive scientists, has publicly announced that cigarettes are worse than ever.

|10/3/2013 - I bet you didn't know that nicotine in commercial cigarettes is up to 35 times stronger than it was in the 1950's and early 1960's, before Big Tobacco (Marlboro and Kool) started using ammonia to free-base it. That is the number one reason why 95% of smokers who try to quit without help will return...|

|5/14/2013 - Did you know that one half of all the smokers in the world want to quit right now but don't know how? What's worse is that 95 percent of smokers who quit smoking without some form of help will return to the cancer-causing habit within six months. These are dismal statistics, and there is more than one...|
|4/10/2013 - Most people who smoke a pack a day of cigarettes know they are treading on thin ice regarding their health, but how many people realize that drinking 30 or more ounces of diet soda each day could prove to be more lethal than a pack of cigarettes? And how can diet soda be worse than regular soda? Even...|
|2/24/2013 - First, let's investigate part of that formula. What do you get when you mix ammonia with bleach and burn it? You get a toxic fire that doesn't go out in heavy wind. When you inhale (inward drag on a cigarette), you get a fire that burns at up to 1,700 degrees at the tip of the cigarette. Here, you have...|
|11/18/2012 - A massive new study about smoking from the University of Oxford in the U.K. has reported breathtaking results.

|7/30/2012 - Smoking is more than just a bad habit; it's an addiction. Governments try to fight smoking by making policies to raise taxes and the price of cigarettes so fewer people can afford them. This might work for some, but for people who are truly addicted, real help to break the addiction is needed. Herbs,...|
|5/16/2012 - The real rationale for the creation of fire safe cigarettes wasn't so much for consumer protection, but was meant more for the manufacturers' defense against lawsuits if and when a smoker accidentally burns their house down.

|5/4/2012 - Shocking new research reveals that a specific type of lung cancer many smokers develop comes from tiny tears in their lung tissue caused by microscopic glass fibers, also known as glass wool, found in many conventional cigarette filters. These rips in the epithelial (soft) tissue fuel the development...|
|4/18/2012 - It's tough to criticize electronic cigarettes (e-cigs) because those who use them brag that they have eliminated most of the toxic chemicals found in commercial cigarettes, and that they're saving money and have cut back on how often they smoke. Plus, about one out of every three e-cig "fan" will tell...|
|4/1/2012 - It is becoming all the rage among the younger generation in Western culture today, and has long been a popular social pastime in many Middle Eastern cultures.

|6/23/2011 - The FDA has released nine new graphic warning labels that will be required on U.S. cigarettes, offering grotesque visual images designed to dissuade smokers from purchasing cigarettes.

|12/23/2010 - In what can only be called a bizarre leap of pseudoscience, U.S. Surgeon General Dr Regina M. Benjamin recently announced that smoking one cigarette can kill you. In fact, she says, just breathing in the smoke from someone else's cigarette can kill you, she claims. It's all part of a just-released report...|

|7/31/2008 - The U.S. Congress has just voted to categorize tobacco as a drug, handing the FDA regulatory authority to control the advertising, marketing and sales of cigarettes.
