How to make a safer cigarette

Jove just published its 1500th video/paper for which congratulations: Video: A Protocol for Detecting and Scavenging Gas-phase Free Radicals in Mainstream Cigarette Smoke.

Sounds straight enough, analytical work for testing free radicals in cigarette smoke. The press release I was sent on this, however, hints at this work from Cornell being somehow ready to bring us a healthier cigarette. Supposedly, antioxidants in the filter would neutralize the cancer-causing free-radicals.

Hmmm…it’s not like anyone is forced to smoke is it?
