Cigars may be hip today, but they're just as dangerous as cigarettes.
Cigar bars, passing out cigars at weddings: They fell out of favor for a while but now they're back. Since there's no warning from the Surgeon General stamped on stogies (Congress didn't explicitly include them in the 1984 law requiring health warnings on cigarettes), the American Cancer Society has compiled a few facts to help snuff out some of the mystique.
Doesn't seem so trendy now, does it? FYI, "bidis" (flavored cigarettes) and chewing tobacco -- which go in and out of favor, especially among teenagers -- are no less risky, and no less addictive, than any other kind of tobacco use.
