Subject: Re: Cigarette brands. Help, please!
I suspect you are right about the overall popularity of "lite" brands of
cigarettes (not just Marlboros). Interestingly enough, my doctor, a former
smoker himself, dissuaded me from using the "lite" brands by telling me he had
analyzed the contents of some lites and discovered they contained a significant
quantity of cocoa leaves, which are more toxic than tobacco. He suspects the
leaves are added to compensate for the loss of flavor from "lite-ning" the cigs.
