If a light cigarette can be just as dangerous as a regular, why do they call them light?

Perhaps it’s so you don’t forget how to use it on account of it being different….? 
A person could absent-mindedly take it out of the packet and stub it straight out in an ashtray if they were so desirous of a smoke with less tar/nicotine, the term ‘light’ could be used to remind them it still has to be smoked to be in with any chance of a fatal disease…

I just answered this Featured Question, you can answer it too!

    The tobacco companies’ strategy is to fool people into thinking the cigarettes labeled ‘light’ are less dangerous. However that is one big fat lie! Smoking cigarettes will put you under a serious risk of dying long before you should – of a range of diseases including (but not confined to) heart trouble; emphysema; stroke and several varieties of cancer!

  4. @Dare2BDiferentt – Hi,  thanks for spotting I’m here less…., I took the Summer off, from computing, and having returned to the indoor pursuits, I’ve rather picked up some other electronickery…., 🙂 we’re getting the band back together (or forming one, depending on how you look at it) – quite busy with it, but I could still post a weblog a day at least, no excuse really…, I’d just fallen back on my notepad & pencil is all – I love sketching….. I will recommence with a post using a sketch I did and then remastered on the pc – a mathematical [Boolean algebraic] grasp of self & universe – if you keep your eye$ peeled but still need a search term, it’s called “Tell U It’s Me”

  5. The quality of your blogs and articles and worth appreciating.best ecigs 2013 battery life
