If you smoke a pack-a-day, it is estimated that you take in a full ounce of nicotine and tars every 11 days. (That's almost a whiskey glassful).
This advertisement for a filtered cigarette holder touts health claims that the “crystal filter” guarantees nicotine and tar ”can’t reach, can’t harm your mouth, tooth gum…your nose, sinuses, throat…and lungs.” An otolaryngologist holds up a DiNicotea filter cigarette holder with a burning cigarette inside. The ad suggests that consumers should try the “Anti-Nicotine Diet without giving up a single cigarette!” Not only does this ad assume that quitting smoking is not an option, but it likens smoking to eating – a daily necessity – with the term “diet.”
