THANK YOU FOR NOT SMOKING!

The popular misconception seems to be that filtered cigarettes are less dangerous than unfiltered ones. The opposite would be the case: people who prefer filtered cigarettes are in danger of dying two to almost four years earlier than smokers of filterless cigarettes. Filters prevent the dilution of the smoke by oxygen so that the bloodstream builds up higher levels of carbon monoxide in the form of carboxyhemoglobin. One of the effects is greater damaged to the cardiovascular system, with the danger of strokes and heart attacks.
