There are too many variables to accurately state that they will live longer. You need a larger control group with the tobacco itself being kept the same for their entire lives.
Trust me, I want this to be true. I would buy a pack tomorrow.
Smoke free for 67 days now.
your exactly right. i use to smoke 2 packs of camel filters a day, before they started all these new crazy taxes on cigarettes.
i called them lung busters, i would fire one up and cough most of the way through it.
the new taxes were eating me alive, so i started buying the cheap brands but most of them sucked.
then one day i found a brand called native.
here is a write up about them.
Made by Native Trading Associates in the Mohawk Nation Territory.
Length: 3 5/16 inch, 84 mm; filter 13/16 inch, 21 mm. The tobacco is a blend of mostly medium brown flakes and crumbs, with a few light and dark ribbons throughout. No foreign matter was found in the sample, and it compressed about 1/16 inch in the tamp-down test. The pack also touts the words "All Natural" and "100% Additive Free". The Old Guy rated this one about a "7" on a scale to 10. He was pleased with the smooth draw and the bold flavor, which had a surprising "kick" and just a hint of vanilla. He didn't think it burned too quickly, either. The biggest problem, he felt, was the extremely unpleasant aftertaste it left behink. It definitely called for a big gulp of one's favorite beverage to get past. It didn't seem to dissipate after the third or fourth "test", either. Aside from that, he would recommend this brand to those looking for a good, solid economical smoke. And the average cost of about $11.00 per carton certainly doesn't hurt.
the write up seems to fairly accurate, of course i don't get them for 11 bucks. i pay a $3.42 a pack.
but now i only smoke about a pack every two days and don't cough at all, i think that's becauce they are additive free and don't have all that bs that the big tobacco companies put in theirs.
here is what the pack looks like.
