Have a real cigarette – have a Camel (Nov, 1958)

Have a real cigarette – have a Camel

New kind of whirlybird! This portable one-man ‘copter can be completely assembled in the field and ready to fly in a hurry. Its pilot, Dick Peck, is a Camel smoker. “I want a cigarette that smokes mild and tastes good,” he says. “Camels do both.”

So good and mild . . . the finest taste in smoking!

Millions of smokers like Dick Peck know the difference between “just smoking” and Camels. They know you get more to enjoy out of Camels —so rich in taste, so mild to smoke. No other cigarette has ever equalled this exclusive blend of costly tobaccos. Today, more people smoke Camels than any other cigarette of any kind. How about you?

    Is that part of a cloud in the inset picture or is it a puff from his Camel?

    At least it isn’t Dick Pecker.

    Dick kind of looks like Frankenstein’s monster.
    “Rrrgh! Smoke good! Mild taste!”

    Actually,those cigs were probably a heckuva lot safer(“safer” being a relative term here)than today’s smokes,because they didn’t have all the chemical additives that today’s cigarettes do.
    I read recently that American smokers are almost 10 times more likely to get lung cancer than smokers elsewhere because their cigarettes are contain naturally cured tobacco,whilst American smokes contain chemically cured tobacco.

    Of course,that doesn’t change the fact that Dick Peck looks as if the big C is already eating his fugly ass alive.

    Fred, so “natural” = “safer” . . . right? And “chemical” = “bad”. Uhhhh . . . OK.

    Fred: You “read recently”? Well then the matter is closed! Actually if you want to see what “smokers elsewhere” are inhaling just go to the Philip Morris International website and see what goodies they have packed in their cancer sticks. I’m not familiar with “chemically cured tobacco” either. I didn’t see it listed here or here.

    Smoking Camels and flying around in your hastily assembled one-man ‘copter? C’mon, Dick, throw a fifth of liquor into the equation.

    Non-filter cigarettes do use higher quality tobacco than the filter cigarettes do. The longer tobacco leaf fibres are needed to hold the cigarette together.

    Firebrand, Fred is one of those anti-science activists who are always convulsing over “big pharma”, “big medicine”, and “big science”. I think big words scare them.

  11. Firebrand38 says: January 1, 20107:00 pm

    Charlene, I believe you’re right.

    Fred, that’s an interesting statistic, and one which I’ve never encountered before. Source, please?

    And which “chemicals” are responsible? Everything made out of atoms is a “chemical.”
