Are the new FSC fire-safe cigarettes making smokers sicker than ever?

by Tima Vlasto

After lighting up are you experiencing more headaches, stomach cramps or a coppery taste in your mouth? Does your new FSC (fire-safe cigarette) taste bad, cause dry mouth and are you coughing more?

New York State was one of the first states to require that cigarettes be made with the new fire-safe paper. This paper is constructed by gluing two or three thin bands of less-porous paper together with an ethylene vinyl acetate copolymer emulsion based adhesive (carpet glue).

These papers have bands (see image) that act as speed bumps so if the cigarette is left unattended it will self-extinguish. The coalitions that passed these laws believe that these cigarettes would limit the number of cigarette fire deaths.

Though this law was passed in 2004, the number of deaths caused by fires from cigarettes hasn’t been greatly reduced, but complaints from smokers all over the U.S has multiplied.

Symptoms include:
Nausea, Sores in mouth and throat, Dry throat, constant headaches, extreme coughing, tightness in the chest, vomiting, body aches, pain in the abdomen and respiratory conditions including asthma and bronchitis.

The website mentions a study by the Harvard School of Public Health:
“The report states, "The majority of smoke toxic compounds (14) tested were not different between New York and Massachusetts brands. Five compounds were slightly higher in New York brands. There is no evidence that these increases affect the already highly toxic nature of cigarette smoke." The research found the majority of toxic compounds were no different between the smoke of the New York and Massachusetts brands that were tested. Five compounds were slightly higher, but no evidence exists that the small increases affect the already highly toxic nature of cigarette smoke.”
Essentially what they are saying is that since cigarettes are already toxic, let’s make them more toxic.

The real numbers from the study are:
“The Harvard School of Health reported that when comparing NY Cigarettes (FSC) versus Regular Cigarettes, the FSC cigarettes produced 13.9% more Naphthalene and 11.4% more carbon monoxide than regular cigarettes. Naphthalene is commonly found in moth balls, and exposure in high amounts can result in headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, malaise, confusion, anemia, jaundice, convulsions, and coma. Therefore, it has been proven that FSC cigarettes contain higher levels of chemicals that are harmful to smokers.”
You can identify these packs of cigarettes by the FSC above the barcode. For now, over 30 states have enacted this law and soon the entire country.

99162 Smoked for over 50 years and these FSC cigarettes made me quit!!!!! I had the same problems with sore throat, constantly clearing my throat, and the feeling of a lump in my throat that I couldn't clear. Tried rolling my own at the cigarette shop, not the same. Said the hell with it and QUIT, still really want on put that nasty taste, no thanks.

9815 A friend of mine suggested that these FSC could be making me very ill. I have severe anxiety, depression, jitters, head pressure, nervous stomach, high cortisol levels, messed up hormones, headaches, my b/p and pulse are all elevated and I am a real mess. Unfunctional. I found some tobacco and some cigarette tubes I bought and will now be using them instead of these poisonous cigarettes that are killing us faster and making us so sick. is there a way to detox from the FSC chemicals they sell us? what can we do besides quitting altogether? Who the hell came up with this crap anyway? I know the government...they want to kill us all faster so they don't have to pay us SS. Some drastic measures have to be done. how do we stop this madness?

74106 I quit smoking two years ago, and ended up starting again after my husband left me, but I knew absolutely nothing about FSC cigarettes until tonight when the man at the store where I purchase the cigarettes mentioned something about it. I came home and looked at the pack I had, and it said FSC on it! That explains the misery I have been going through over the last 7 months! I am furious!! I felt as though I was dying, and I could not figure out why. I have been sick eight times and have been to the emergency room three times in the last 7 months (and I am NEVER sick, normally). This is an outrage!!! How long could I have gone on smoking these things without even knowing about this?? This is a major lawsuit here.

Here's the kicker... Get the public hooked on an addictive product, allow the manufacturers to increase the addictive ingredients over time (insuring repeated long-term sales - greed), then jack the price to a debilitating level, and then, to add insult to injury, slip in some highly poisonous ingredient quietly - that takes lives in a short period of time... too short to allow the addicted victims the chance to successfully and safely get themselves off of the product. What the hell is wrong with the people who pass these kinds of laws?? It is irresponsible and INHUMANE. Most successful quitters take approximately 7 or 8 tries before finally terminating the habit permanently. Just because a person knows something isn't all that healthy for them doesn't mean they can instantly end an addiction. It's called dependency for a reason. It requires a process for most people. Withdrawal is very real and painful to go through. But many of the people pushing for these things are ignorant to what an addiction is about. They think they can just use force, which doesn't work with an addiction. Please sue the pants off these judgemental lawmakers and manufacturers who place no value on human life!

74106 If they will do this to something like cigarettes, what will they allow to go in our food? Or drinking water?

Folks, hate to break the news to you but our government cannot be trusted any longer, to preserve human life and safety.(and who knows what else.)

What about the standards used to build bridges and roadways? What about safety practices in schools?

It's a very small jump to these other things, and I think we had all better have our eyes wide open. There is obviously no moral compass of any kind any longer where it comes to a government that protects it's people.
