What do they mean when Winston claims their cigarettes are “Additive Free”?

Answer:

It’s partly marketing hype, to make you think that their brand is not as deadly as all the rest. I believe that some cigarette manufacturers (I was about to say, ‘unscrupulous’ but that would be redundant) add a material that makes your body absorb the nicotine faster; i.e., it gets you addicted quicker. Winstons supposedly don’t have that. Doesn’t mean they’re any safer, or any good for you.

    It means the tobacco it free of preservatives. Its still addictive and harm full to your health. I think they put that on their advertising to make the public believe that this product is less harm full to your health. Just another lie from the tobacco industry.
