In a St. Joseph Healthscene report, the only thing light about cigarettes advertised that way appears to be the marketing campaign itself. The latest research indicates that so-called light products deliver nearly as much nicotine to the brain as regular cigarettes. UCLA researchers have found that even the smallest amount of nicotine in a person's system will activate a significant percentage of receptors in the brain, making light cigarettes as difficult to quit as any other.
