We here in Virginia have jumped on the shortbus bandwagon too! Only FSC's are to be sold in the Old Dominion now. Thank god I roll my own.
Fact is they are poisoning you even worse than before.
This is from the Citizens against firesafe cigarettes website:
a. The Harvard School of Health reported that when comparing NY Cigarettes (FSC) versus Regular Cigarettes, the FSC cigarettes produced 13.9%
more Naphthalene and 11.4% more carbon monoxide than regular cigarettes. Naphthalene is commonly found in moth balls, and exposure in high amounts
can result in %u201CSymptoms of acute exposure include headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, malaise, confusion, anemia, jaundice, convulsions, and
coma.%u201D Therefore, it has been proven that FSC cigarettes contain higher levels of chemicals that are harmful to smokers.
b. Phillip Morris USA has reported that the Adhesive ethylene vinyl acetate and polyvinyl acetate are used in the non-tobacco ingredients of
cigarettes produced as a Side-seam adhesive. However, Phillip Morris USA fails to distinguish the differences in levels between regular and FSC
cigarettes. The amount does not exceed .6 % combined. Since additional layers of paper are used in FSC cigarettes, more adhesive is needed in the
form of ethylene vinyl acetate.
How more blatant can it be that they are INCREASING the poisons already in cigarettes? I lift my middle finger in praise of those who work so
diligently to save the lives of smokers
Just wait till I get my call girl tax passed, I'll get them where it hurts most!
