It Is Safe to Smoke

£50.00

Product description

Somewhere in the midst of the debate about smoking and health must be the truth: Are cigarettes harmful to smokers? Lloyd Mallan, eminent science writer and editor, has investigated a wide range of technical reports and has interviewed top-ranking research scientists to arrive at his independent decision: It is safe to smoke- certain kinds of cigarettes. The United States Government has tried to condemn all cigarettes and smoking, while the American Tobacco Institute insists that no brand of cigarette can be proven to be harmful. Backed by independent, objective analysis and research, It Is Safe to Smoke shows both to be wrong, and points to the middle way: Some cigarettes are dangerous, others are safe. The villain? The smoke- not the tars. The answer? Activated charcoal in filters. The author lists by name the actual cigarette brands proved to be safest to smoke.

Condition: Dustjacket is shelf worn and slightly torn. There is some light foxing to the foreedges. However, every interior page is clean and readable with a good tight binding.
