Menthol and You

Prior to e-cigarettes, menthols were another variant of nicotine consumption. As studies developed, menthols were proven to be equally as dangerous as regular cigarettes. By 2012, more than 75 percent of African-American smokers used menthols; and of African-American youths who smoke, more than 80.4 percent prefer menthols. (Photo: Joe Raedle/Getty Images)
