Q&A: Are Light Cigaretters Safer While Pregnant?

Is it safer to smoke light cigarettes while I'm pregnant?

News flash: Smoking is smoking, no matter what kind of cigarettes they are. Don’t be fooled by the misleading labels on light cigarettes, either. They may claim to have "low nicotine" or "low tar," but these terms are actually meaningless. According to the National Cancer Institute, people who switch to light cigarettes are likely to inhale the same amount of toxins as they would with regular cigarettes, so the only way to make sure baby’s completely safe is to stop smoking as soon as you learn you’re pregnant.
