So I went to the store and brought a pack of Marlboro and it appeared that it does not have the transparent shadow on the plastic. I feel much better now. To me it seems like Marlboro has stopped/changed their way of counterfeiting their products. So the newer batches should not have the shadow on plastic. The older real or fake Marlboros will have the shadow. Pretty sure this is a very recent change to their packaging.

Oh, cool.

That makes smoking regular cigs so much better for my health.

I think you're okay as far as lead is concerned with either fake or real...
Quote:
Being insoluble, small quantities of Pb-210 are retained in lungs, releasing radiation as it decays to Polonium-210. The average 1 pack a day smoker is exposed to the equivalent of over ten times the average US background radiation exposure, roughly one third of this from Pb-210. It is unlikely to be predominantly responsible for the increased risk of lung cancer by itself.

Cigarettes contain over 4000 chemicals; over 20 are probably carcinogenic and over 60 mutagenic (affecting genes and their impacts). Cigarette smoke increases the vulnerability of lung tissue to radiation and other carcinogens. There is weak and dated evidence that Pb-210 could play a role in lung cancer.
You'll surely be affected by the other carcinogenic and mutagenic chemicals before lead.

I have never heard about this. Back then when when Marlboro were doing the 5 miles thing it was easy to spot a fake. But if you have been smoking for 15 years or whatever you can easily tell if it's fake or not.

^ yeah, i'd assume fakes would taste different. i could be mistaken though since i've never smoked fakes. B class from south of the border, yes, but no fakes.
