Washington: A new research has revealed that ‘harm reduction cigarettes’, marketed by tobacco companies as safer than conventional brands, could in fact, be more harmful.Harm reduction cigarettes are made using complex filters or by genetically altering tobacco plants to reduce nicotine concentration.
Talbot`s research team examined the following harm-reduction cigarette brands: Marlboro Lights, Advance Premium Lights, and Quest. The team used Marlboro Red cigarettes to represent conventional brands.The team also found that sidestream smoke was consistently more potent to the embryonic stem cells than mainstream smoke, regardless of whether the cigarette brand was harm reduction or conventional.Study results appear in the November issue of Toxicological Sciences.
