Buy Menthol online : Menthol is a chemical that occurs naturally in peppermint and other mint plants, but it can also be made in a lab. Menthol, first added to tobacco in the 1920s and 1930s, reduces the harshness of cigarette smoke and nicotine irritation. Under the Family Tobacco Prevention and Control Act of 2009, which gives the Food and Drug Administration authority over tobacco products, menthol was the only flavoring allowed in cigarettes in sufficient amounts to be a “characteristic flavor.” Tobacco companies have relied on menthol’s calming and cooling effects to make cigarettes more appealing to new smokers, youth, black and LGBTQ Americans, among others. Menthol cigarette marketing has been targeted at black Americans for decades.

More than 18.9 million people currently smoke menthol cigarettes.1 Flavors, including menthol, are one of the main reasons children start using tobacco products.

A recent study quantified the disproportionate harm caused by menthol cigarettes to black Americans and found that menthol cigarettes were responsible for 1.5 million new smokers, 157,000 premature smoking-related deaths, and 1.5 million years of life lost among black Americans in the 1980s- 2018.
