From Cigarettes To "Preps"

You're still smoking but you'd like to cut back, so you're smoking preps instead.

Sound familiar? If that's your plan, you need to know that "preps", which stands for potentially reduced exposure products, are no less dangerous than other cigarettes. That's according to a new study at the University of Minnesota where researchers say they can find no proof that preps have fewer toxins than traditional cigarettes.

Eclipse is one of the preps products, which claims to release fewer toxins because it heats the tobacco instead of burning it.
