Question: What's the difference between a cigarette with a cork filter (brown, like Kools) and an all white one!?
No duh they look different, but does the difference signify anything else!? I've noticed that the all whites tend to smell better (less bad) than the cork filtered ones!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Marketing!. It is just the color of the paper!. When filter cigarettes were first introduced, they needed a visual to show the difference of where the filter was located!. So some genius came up with idea to make it look like cork!? When the cigarette companies wanted to market to women they found that a white filter paper was more acceptable!. Marlboros were first marketed to women!. The brand has become #1 amoung men when they changed their marketing!. Here is an interesting story!. I had a girlfriend who smoked Capri Ultra Light 120's!.
She could smoke 4 of her cigarettes to my one Marlboro


They want you to feel they are safer!. You won't notice the damage till it's too late!. Smoking and drinking and everything you that is bad for you!. I also smoked, drank did all the wrong things 58 two heart attacks, quad by-pass surgery, diabetes, Aneurysm , 7 years later can't walk two blocks, went blowing with my nephew made it thru 6 frames and spent the next two hours catching my breath!. After having a Ventilator shoved down your throat for 3 hours you will wish to God you never started smoking!. cigarettes are made to addict you!. All this may never happen to you but why chance it!. You see those people carrying air tanks so they can breath and they still smoke, that's heavy duty!. When they pulled out the ventilator that was it lost all desire to quit thank God I can still breath but you can forget about doing anything stress full you won't last 10 minutes!. I take maybe 40 pills and insulin to stay alive!. I thought about cashing it in but the urge to live is far greater!. If your hooked now fight to quit if you haven't or thinking about smoking to be cool don't!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

wow im guessing you dont smoke!? umm the white ones are an unfilterd ciggerate so that means there is nothing filtering out the tar and other chemicals before you inhale it into your lungs!. Its basically just a rolled ciggerate kinda like how one would roll a joint!. So the browns one obviously are filterd!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Well the filtered ones filter the air you breathe so its still really bad for you but it's better for you then the all whites!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

The white ones are lites, so I guess maybe the filter lets less throughWww@FoodAQ@Com

nothing at all you will still get cancer and dieWww@FoodAQ@Com
