Default Re: Tar Released During Smoking?

So are his claims true? I had no idea.
Basically the claim about tar is BS if you actually know how to manage your coals. If the tobacco doesn't literally burn you'll have extremely low to no tar. According to my last medical exam I don't have any noticeable levels of nicotine or tar and my cardio-vascular condition is perfect for someone of my age.
