U.S. Made Cigarettes Cause the Most Cancer

According to a recent study, U.S. made cigarettes tend to contain more cancer-causing chemicals than cigarettes brands made elsewhere around the world.

In particular, U.S. cigarettes have more TSNAs, or tobacco-specific nitrosamines, than foreign made cigarettes. TSNAs are the major cancer-causing substance in tobacco.

Paging Dr. Gupta reports:

“The cigarettes smoked by the study recruits represented some of the more popular brands for each country including: Players light and DuMaurier in Canada; Marlboro, Newport Light, Camel Light in the U.S.; Peter Jackson and Peter Stuyvesant in Australia; and Benson & Hedges and Silk Cut Purple in the United Kingdom.”
