Although there was an opinion that cigarettes with filter do not cause lung cancer, health experts and doctors in Turkish university Erkies found that they just redirect cancer to other organs.
Metin Ozkan, head of oncology at the University, says that cigarettes with filter do not protect against cancer as opposed to what the public knew, but they contribute to its spread, first causing cancer in the stomach which then spreads through the whole body.
Study revealed that 70% of patients were with epidermoid cancer, and had 30% of patients have stomach cancer. Now the ratio is 80% to 20%, but it has increased in patients with stomach cancer.
