What do marlboro lights smokers know about low-tar cigarettes? — robert wood johnson foundation

This study examines what Marlboro Lights smokers know about the health risks of low tar cigarettes compared with regular cigarettes, and whether they know that the filters of Marlboro Lights cigarettes have vents.

The study used data from a survey of 1,046 adult U.S. smokers, 197 of whom (19 percent) smoked Marlboro Lights, the most popular brand in the survey. Only 13 percent of these smokers knew that a low tar cigarette delivers about the same amount of tar as a regular cigarette. Only 32 percent knew that their cigarette filters contain vents, which facilitate deeper inhaling and cool the smoke to give it a lighter feeling in the mouth. Sixty two percent thought that adding a filter to a cigarette makes it less dangerous to smoke, while 60 percent thought that reducing tar in a cigarette made it less dangerous. About 15 percent thought that light cigarettes were less likely than regular cigarettes to lead to addiction.

The authors note that Marlboro Lights smokers are for the most part misinformed or uninformed about the health risks of light cigarettes. They also note that smokers of other light or ultra light brands do not know significantly more than Marlboro Lights smokers about the health risks of light cigarettes. The authors indicate that cigarette marketing reinforces perceptions that light cigarettes are safer, and suggest remedial public education as well as an overhaul of current cigarette marketing tactics.

Comments

The packaging for Marlboro Menthol comes in this green looking classic pack. The design is pretty eye catching, and can be a symbol of status. The cigarette feels pretty heavy when you hold it between your fingers. The cigarette looks like any other menthol cigarettes, so no extra points for that. The taste of the cigarette is average, but it has a burning effect on your throat, which leaves much to be desired. The cigarette also has a very strong aftertaste and smell. The cigarette burns slowly, thus giving your more value for money. This cigarette goes well with whiskey and coffee, due to the strong taste. A word of caution this cigarette with coffee has a weak laxative effect.
