Q: I smoke 4-5 cigarettes daily and presently my age is 23 years but the cigarettes I smoke have Menthol. I had heard from several people that the cigarettes which had a MENTHOL content cause impotency to the smoker Is this information a myth or a fact?
A:Menthol is a natural compound that is found in the mint herb. It is used in medicines, sweets and candies, toothpaste, cigarettes and so on, in addition to being a popular constituent of numerous foods. For all practical purposes, it can be considered harmless and free of serious side effects. Thus smokers of mentholated tobacco need not be concerned about the former, but should certainly worry about the latter.
