Women Cigarette with “Fast Killer” Flavor
Tricks of tobacco workers (at least in advertising) have long been known both to a science and to smokers. The most common means resorted by the producers of tobacco are a bright stylish package design; positioning of cigarettes as part of the image of modern and independent man, division of their products on “only masculine, ” “only feminine”, “mild”, “classic” , “new”, etc. and other games with the mind of consumers. These tricks are guessed in almost any advertising campaign, while others – with a more scientific approach – remain out of sight of a simple buyer.
These primarily include experiments with the chemical composition of the product. It, unlike the design, does not have to strike eyes of a smoker. Buying cigarettes, only few people think about what is actually wrapped into tobacco cigarette. Specifically, various flavorings and flavoring additives are intended to “soften” the original flavor of tobacco and as a result cigarettes are tastier. According to U.S. scientists from the department of psychiatry and behavioral psychology of the medical center at Duke University, this, firstly, makes smoking more intrusive and “pleasant” (i.e., prevents quitting) and, most important, adds a cigarette even more poison.
For example: the most popular sweetening of tobacco is cocoa, honey, vanilla and licorice. If to consume these products for their intended purpose, i.e. as a food, they will not harm. But burning down along with other components of cigarettes, they may decompose to harmful and even poisonous substances that getting into the lungs poison our bodies. The same cocoa powder releases gas bromine at burning, which causes distensibility of the lungs, and their sensitivity drops considerably. As a result, the particles of tar and nicotine are absorbed into the blood easier and in large quantities, and the smoker gets a “double dose” of a seemingly easy smoke.
In this case, doctors say that much depends on the favorable tastes of a smoker – just like with food. If a person does not like sweets and hates bitter foods (i.e., taste perception is extremely aggravated) flavoring additives in cigarettes have almost no influence on him. Moreover, the study of the National Institutes of Health (USA), which started in 2001, showed that such people are generally less prone to tobacco dependence, because any cigarettes seem to them “tasteless.
But people with reduced taste (a little bit sensitive to the flavor and usually like sweet or sour, or sharp, etc.) smoke tobacco more and get the chemical tricks of manufacturers. Scientists, however, have not figured out whether sweets urges to smoke, or both mechanisms are caused by some single genetic features. However, the fact remains – amateurs of sweet and acrid have an increased risk of becoming smokers.
