Smoking and Tobacco
Do all cigarettes contain fiber glass?
i was wondering if all the brands of tobaco contain fiber glass but my main question is about the cigarettes. my cousin said that she was coughing up blood because of the fiber glass in newports. but what about brands like marlboro? or the "cowboy killers" as they are known as here. and what would be the diference between marlboro reds and mentholed?
Given that your cousin reports coughing up blood, it is important for her to consult with her health care provider.
