Indeed, nonetheless there are many examine articles that indicate to menthol as a probable contributing cause to several health effects of smoking, a infancy did not examine menthol as an eccentric cause and instead focused on racial/ethnic disparities in use,” said a paper published in the National Center for Biotechnology Information behind in 2011,
