Cigarettes are good for you :-)

Well, no of course they aren't, and anyone who says they are is an idiot but you have to admire the sheer audacity of a company that thinks they can make a healthy cigarette by adding some vitamins :-)
A Quebec company is producing a cigarette it claims does not stain teeth, has less of an odour than regular brands and contains beneficial ingredients like vitamin C.

Of course Health Canada were a little direct in their rebuttal
"I say this half-jokingly: a safe cigarette is one that's not lit," Health Canada spokesperson Mathew Cook said.

But lets not forget that you can actually overdose with vitamin C so if that 100 a day habit doesn't kill you then the vitamins may so the job instead. Course this "healthy" cigarette will still get you kicked out of Irish pubs, and rightly so, but a friend of mine thinks he has found the solution to that, though I somehow don't see it taking off.
